Mr WYATT (HasluckMinister for Aged Care and Minister for Indigenous Health) (11:40): I move:

That this bill be now read a second time.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Land and Sea Future Fund (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2018 facilitates the establishment of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Land and Sea Future Fund through amendments to:

the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Act 2005;

the DisabilityCare Australia Fund Act 2013;

the Future Fund Act 2006;

the Medical Research Future Fund Act 2015; and

the Nation-building Funds Act 2008.

The bill also includes minor technical amendments contingent on the enactment of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Amendment (Indigenous Land Corporation) Act 2018, which relate to the re-naming of the Indigenous Land Corporation as the Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation, reflecting the entity's wider remit effected by that act.

Taken together, the consequential amendments in this bill would enable the effective operation of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Land and Sea Future Fund Act at commencement.

Debate adjourned.
