Dr J F CAIRNS (Lalor Minister for Overseas Trade and Minister for Secondary Industry) - I move:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

This Bill, which is complementary to the Excise Tariff Bill (No. 2) I have just introduced, will amend the Excise Act 1901-1972 by providing penal provisions for breaches of the concession permitting the home brewing of beer. The amendments provide for the forfeiture of beer on which duty has not been paid that is sold or offered for sale and for a pecuniary penalty for persons who contravene the concession. I commend the Bill.

Debate (on motion by Mr Chipp) adjourned.
