Australian Apple and Pear Corporation Amendment Bill 1976

Introduced by the Minister for Primary Industry, Hon. I. Sinclair, House of Representatives, 18 November, 1976.

Brief Digest of Bill

Summary

One provision of this Bill seeks to amend the Australian Apple and Pear Corporation Act 1973 to provide for the payment to the Corporation of all moneys (except fines) collected under the Apple and Pear Levy Collection Act 1976 and the Apple and Pear Export Charge Collection Act 1976 (clause 4). This is to replace the reference in the Corporation’s Act to collection of moneys paid under the Apple and Pear Export Charges Act 1938-1973 which is to be repealed.

The other provisions will change the auditing and annual report provisions from a financial to a calendar year basis. This is to correspond with the seasonal flow of receipts from the levy on domestic sales.
