Mr McGAURAN (Minister for Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs) (9:38 AM) —I move:

That the bill be now read a second time.

The Radiocommunications (Receiver Licence Tax) Amendment Bill 2004, which accompanies the Australian Communications and Media Authority Bill 2004, makes amendments to the Radiocommunications (Receiver Licence Tax) Act 1983 to replace any existing references in that act to the Australian Communications Authority or ACA with references to the Australian Communications and Media Authority or ACMA.

The bill also contains transitional provisions to provide for the continuing effect of any existing election notices given to the ACA by a holder of a receiver licence electing to pay tax on each anniversary of the day the licence came into force, and determinations made by the ACA under the act prior to the establishment of the Australian Communications and Media Authority. I commend the bill to the House.

Debate (on motion by Mr Bevis) adjourned.
