Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral and Minister for Customs and Excise) - I move:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

The Customs Tariff Bill (No. 2) 1973 is complementary to the Industries Assistance Commission Bill 1973 which I have just introduced and correlates the Customs Tariff with that Bill. This Bill also repeals section 1 8 of the principal Act which makes provision for deferred rates of duty- that is, different rates to come into force at some future date after inquiry and report by the Tariff Board. The use of this style of tariff provision has been outmoded for several decades and the deletion of the section is made on the grounds of redundancy. I commend the Bill to the Senate.

Debate (on motion by Senator Cotton) adjourned.
