Mr BARRY JONES (Minister for Science)(8.33) —I move:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

This Bill is supplementary to the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation Bill. Its purpose is to ensure a smooth transition from the Australian Atomic Energy Commission to ANSTO. The Bill provides for transfer of the property, staff, powers, rights, estimates of expenditure, liabilities and obligations of the AAEC to ANSTO. I commend the Bill to the House.

Debate (on motion by Mr Braithwaite) adjourned.
