Senator LUDWIG (QueenslandMinister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry and Minister Assisting on Queensland Floods Recovery) (12:27): by leave—I move government amendments (15) and (16) on sheet BL210 together:

(15) Schedule 5, item 2, page 47 (lines 9 to 11), to be opposed.

(16) Schedule 5, page 47 (after line 18), at the end of the Schedule, add:

4 Application of amendments made by items 1 and 3

(1) The amendment made by item 1 of this Schedule applies to acts or things done on or after the day this Schedule commences.

(2) The amendment made by item 3 of this Schedule applies in relation to an authorisation made on or after the day this Schedule commences.

I appreciate the opportunity to move these amendments. Amendments (15) and (16) make technical amendments. I will not go into what they do; I am sure everyone is familiar with them. They ensure the completeness of the existing application provisions in schedule 5 of the bill. I commend the amendments to the Senate.
