Senator COTTON (New South Wales) -I seek leave to make an explanation.

The PRESIDENT -Is leave granted? There being no dissent, leave is granted.

Senator COTTON -I observe that on the initiative of the Government Customs Tariff Bill 1974 has been postponed- that is the best way to put it. We are now dealing with Customs Tariff Bill (No. 2) 1974. The long title has not been read so I am purposely telling the Senate that we are dealing with Customs Tariff Bill (No. 2) 1974, which is a money Bill. Honourable senators on either side are entitled, if they want to do so, to make observations on a wide range of subjects on the first reading of this Bill. If the Minister for Agriculture (Senator Wriedt) would like to revert to that sort of discussion on the Customs TariffBill 1974 and not on this Bill, the Customs TariffBill (No. 2), we will help him to facilitate that process.
