Dr WOOLDRIDGE (Minister for Health and Aged Care) (4:19 PM) —I move:

That the bill be now read a second time.

The Gene Technology (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2000 is the third bill in the package of regulation of genetically modified organisms. The bill creates an interface between the new Gene Technology Regulator and existing regulatory agencies, including the Therapeutic Goods Administration, the National Registration Authority for Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals and the Australia New Zealand Food Authority. For reasons outlined in my earlier statement, I also commend the bill to the House and present the explanatory memorandum to the bill.

Debate (on motion by Mr Griffin) adjourned.
