Mr WILSON (Corangamite) .- On behalf of the honorable member for Grampians, I move -

That the words " Australian standard brandy " be left out, with a view to insert in lieu thereof words " Pure Australian grape brandy."

Sir John Quick - That is a new name.

Mr WILSON - The honorable member for Grampians considers that it would be a better name to apply since it would convey to the minds of the consumers the fact that the brandy in question was essentially a grape brandy.

Sir John Quick - It would lead to the opinion that there was brandy other than that made from the grape.

Mr WILSON - Perhaps so; but the honorable member for Grampians represents a wine-growing district, and I presume that the amendment was suggested by vignerons in his electorate.
