Mr DUFFY (Minister for Communications)(11.06) —I move:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

The issue of frequency reservation certificates to facilitate forward planning in the use of the radio frequency spectrum is authorised by clause 21 of the Radiocommunications Bill. This Bill imposes a tax on the grant of a frequency reservation certificate. Details of the amount of tax for such certificates are to be prescribed by regulation. I commend the Bill to the House.

Debate (on motion by Mr Shipton) adjourned.
