Senator TROETH (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry) (12:49 PM) —I thank senators for their comments on the Law and Justice Legislation Amendment Bill 2004. The bill is an important piece of legislation that will amend 22 acts and thereby neaten the statute books considerably. The bill amends legislation to improve the efficiencies of a variety of court, tribunal and diplomatic and consular functions and to align their procedures with standard practices. The bill also removes typographical errors and makes minor consequential amendments that were not made on previous occasions. It clarifies the operation of certain provisions and removes references to legislation and organisations that are no longer in operation or have been renamed. I commend the bill to the Senate.

Question agreed to.

Bill read a second time.
