Senator BELL (5.17 p.m.) —This amendment will prevent the committee from recommending new levies and, instead, gives it the authority to recommend the cessation of existing imposts. As I indicated in my remarks on the second reading, that is consistent with the government's own waterfront reform policy and will clarify the residual role of the committee, the remaining levies and what they are supposed to achieve. We support the amendment.
