Senator GRIMES (Minister for Social Security)(10.10) —I move:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

I seek leave to incorporate the second reading speech in Hansard.

Leave granted.

The speech read as follows-

I present the Supply (Parliamentary Departments) Bill 1984-85. This Bill seeks interim appropriations to meet expenditure by the parliamentary departments during the period 1 July 1984 to 30 November 1984. The appropriations sought total some $17.2m, which is $3.2m or about 22.9 per cent greater than the amount provided for the same functions in the supply period 1983-84. This reflects, in large part, increased staffing approvals and salary and other cost increases. I commend the Bill to the Senate.

Debate (on motion by Senator Kilgariff) adjourned.
