Mr McNEILL (Wannon) (Minister for Health) .- I move-

That the bill be now read a second time.

This is a non-contentious measure. In the Zoological Museum Agreement Act 1924, Parliament provided for the formation of a National Museum of Australian Zoology, and approved of an agreement made between the Commonwealth of Australia and Sir William Colin MacKenzie, which agreement was set forth in the schedule to the act. Early in 1928 Cabinet decided that the administration of the Zoological Museum Agreement Act 1924, should be transferred from the then Department of Home and Territories to the Department of Health. On the 24th July, 1928, Cabinet approved the alteration of the title of the Museum from "National Museum of Australian Zoology ", to " Australian Institute of Anatomy". These decisions of Cabinet necessitate a variation of the terms of the agreement between the Commonwealth of Australia and Sir William Colin MacKenzie. This bill provides for the alteration of the title of the Museum to that of " Australian Institute of Anatomy", and for the ratification and approval of the necessary variations of the agreement.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time and - by leave - passed through its remaining stages without amendment or debate.
