The SPEAKER (15:12): I advise the House that earlier today the Australia Council Bill 2013 and the Australia Council (Consequential and Transitional Provisions) Bill 2013 were passed by the House, with amendments made to the first bill. The bills had been referred to the Standing Committee on Climate Change, Environment and the Arts for an advisory report. Contrary to standing order 148, the bills went through all stages prior to the committee reporting. I note the oral advisory report was given soon after the passage of the bills.
