Mr GRAY (Parliamentary Secretary for Western and Northern Australia) (4:39 PM) —I move:

That the amendments be agreed to.

TheTrade Practices Amendment (Australian Consumer Law) Bill (No. 2) 2010 represents the final legislative step at the Commonwealth level to implement the most significant reforms in consumer law since the enactment of the Trade Practices Act 1974. It is truly a generational change in consumer law and the process has been a triumph for cooperative federalism. The government acknowledges the constructive approach taken by the opposition, particularly the shadow minister for consumer affairs. The government thanks the opposition for their support for this important bill. The amendments moved in the Senate address recommendations made by the Senate Economics Committee, including coalition minority recommendations, and make other minor and technical amendments. This bill demonstrates the government’s commitment to enhancing the wellbeing of all Australian consumers. I commend the bill to the House.

Question agreed to.
