Senator MASON (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Health and Ageing) (1:05 PM) —I thank Senator Bishop and Senator Carr for their contributions to the debate on the Governance Review Implementation (Science Research Agencies) Bill 2007.  These amendments reflect the recommendations of the Uhrig review and align each agency’s governance arrangements with current best practice. This will ensure that administration of the recently announced government funding for AIMS, ANSTO and CSIRO for the next quadrennium—the largest ever research budget—will be efficient, effective and accountable. I commend the bill to the Senate.

Question agreed to.

Bill read a second time.
