Mrs KELLY (Minister for the Arts, Sport, the Environment and Territories) (8.39 p.m.) —I move:

  That the Bill be now read a second time.

This Bill is associated with the Endangered Species Protection Bill 1992. The Bill clarifies the circumstances in which endangered species considerations trigger environment assessment under the Environment Protection (Impact of Proposals) Act 1974.

  There are also amendments to the National Parks and Wildlife Conservation Act 1975 to enable the Director of the Australian National Parks and Wildlife Service to carry out duties specified in the Endangered Species Protection Bill.  I commend the Bill to the House, and present the explanatory memorandum.

  Debate (on motion by Mr Jull) adjourned.
