Mr DRUM (MurrayAssistant Minister to the Deputy Prime Minister) (09:56): I move:

That this bill be now read a second time.

The third and final bill is the Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) Levy (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2018, which will amend three existing pieces of legislation to give effect to the levy.

Amendments to the Australian Maritime Safety Authority Act 1990 will expand existing provisions addressing payment of levies to AMSA to include payments under the new domestic commercial vessel levy to AMSA.

Amendments to the Marine Navigation (Regulatory Functions) Levy Collection Act 1991 will clarify that leviable domestic commercial vessels are exempt from the Marine Navigation (Regulatory Functions) Levy.

Amendments to the Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) National Law Act 2012will expand AMSA's existing powers to suspend or revoke certificates of survey or detain a domestic commercial vessel to allow AMSA to exercise these powers in response to nonpayment of an amount or instalment of the new domestic commercial vessel levy.

I commend the bill to the House.

Debate adjourned.
