Mr TAYLOR (HumeMinister for Energy and Emissions Reduction) (11:53): I move:

That this bill be now read a second time.

The Passenger Movement Charge Amendment (Timor Sea Maritime Boundaries Treaty) Bill 2019 complements the Timor Sea Maritime Boundaries Treaty Consequential Amendments Bill 2019.

This bill amends the Passenger Movement Charge Act 1978 by replicating the imposition of the passenger movement charge in relation to journeys to an installation in the special regime area.

This package of bills gives partial effect to the 2018Treaty Between Australia and the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste Establishing Their Maritime Boundaries in the Timor Sea.

I commend this bill to the House.

Debate adjourned.
