Mr DEAKIN (Ballarat) (Minister of External Affairs) . - The object of going into Committee of Ways and Means is to avoid the insertion in the Bill of the two dates that are named in the resolution as those from which the duties upon spirits shall commence to operate. The resolution was brought down upon the 14th inst., butwedealt with it upon the 15th and 16th inst., and, in view of the fact that the few transactions which took place in the interval involved no complications we think it is only a reasonable concession to date all the duties from the 17th inst., so that whatever changes have been made will all operate as from that date. I therefore move -

That the date named in the resolution be the 17th August, 1906.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment (by Sir William Lyne) proposed -

That in paragraph 8 the following words be left out, "matured by storage in wood for a period of not less than two years."
