Senator PATTERSON (Minister for Family and Community Services and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Women’s Issues) (6:31 PM) —On behalf of Minister Campbell I thank honourable senators for their contribution to the debate on the Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards Bill 2004. Since it is not my area of expertise I will not add anything other than to note that WELS, Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards, is a much easier acronym to remember, having some association with water. I have acronyms in my portfolio that do not seem to have any bearing on the program that they are related to. I suppose being a WELS inspector is appropriate when we are talking about water efficiency. I commend the bill to the chamber.

Question agreed to.

Bill read a second time.
