Mr McGAURAN (Minister for Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs) (9:39 AM) —I move:

That the bill be now read a second time.

The Radiocommunications (Spectrum Licence Tax) Amendment Bill 2004, which accompanies the Australian Communications and Media Authority Bill 2004, makes amendments to the Radiocommunications (Spectrum Licence Tax) Act 1997 to replace 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 amends notes consequential upon the ACMA bill, and contains transitional provisions to provide for the continuing effect of 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.
