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.

The purpose of the Bill now before the House is to implement the Government's decision to extend the payment of bounty on the production of agricultural tractors for a further period of 6 months to 30th June 1973 or until such earlier date as may be fixed by proclamation. The Government's decision to extend the bounty period was announced on 29th December 1972. Extension of the bounty period will ensure continued assistance to the industry while the Government completes its consideration of the Tariff Board report which has recently been received. I commend the Bill to honourable members.

Debate (on motion by Mr Chipp) adjourned.
