Mr DRUM (MurrayAssistant Minister to the Deputy Prime Minister) (09:54): I move:

That this bill be now read a second time.

The second bill in this package is the Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) Levy Collection Bill 2018, which will create an act to define when and how the levy on domestic commercial vessels is payable.

This bill defines when the levy is due and payable for both full-year and pro-rata circumstances, provides that the levy may be paid by instalment and creates a late payment penalty.

Additionally, the bill addresses administrative matters, including that the levy may be paid in advance and that overpayments of the levy, instalments of the levy or penalties must be refunded.

Finally, the bill empowers the minister to make rules about matters prescribed or required by the act, as well as about matters necessary or convenient to carry out or give effect to this act.

I commend the bill to the House.

Debate adjourned.
