The CHAIRMAN (Mr Scholes (CORIO, VICTORIA) - Order! The honourable member for New England will need leave to move 2 amendments together. Is leave granted?

Mr Grassby - Yes.

Mr SINCLAIR - I thank the House for giving me leave. These 2 amendments relate to another amendment the substance of which will become more apparent at a later stage of the debate in Committee. The definition of export meat inspection costs' relates specifically to the undertaking given by the Minister for Immigration (Mr Grassby) in his second reading speech. In his second reading speech he said that the purpose of this Bill was, in accordance with the undertaking given by the Treasurer (Mr Crean) in the Budget, to recoup the cost to the Government of export meat inspection. The specific amendments are intended to identify just what export meat inspection costs are and the purpose of the inclusion of the definition is to ensure that export meat inspection costs are identifiable in the Bill. The reason for the inclusion of this definition will become apparent when I speak to the amendment which I will move at a later stage.
