Second Reading

Debate resumed on the motion:

That this bill be now read a second time.

to which the following amendment was moved:

That all the words after "That" be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

"the House declines to give the bill a second reading because it would be ill advised to continue with the bill without considering:

(1) the impact of Schedule 1 of this bill in relation to the protection of matters of national environmental significance under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999; and

(2) government plans for the delegation of approval powers to states through bilateral agreements."
