Mr ENDERBY (Australian Capital Territory) (Minister for the Capital Territory and Minister for the Northern Territory) - I move:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

This short Bill is complementary to that part of the Acts Interpretation Bill that is concerned with the change of the name of the Commonwealth of Australia Gazette' to Australian Government Gazette'. It applies the present provision of the Acts Interpretation Act, that the mere production of a paper purporting to be the 'Commonwealth of Australian Gazette' shall in all courts be evidence that the paper is the 'Commonwealth of Australia Gazette' and was published on the day on which it bears date, also to the 'Gazette' when published under its new name 'The Australian Government Gazette'. I commend the Bill to the House.

Debate (on motion by Mr Bonnett) adjourned.
