Mr BRADBURY (LindsayAssistant Treasurer and Minister Assisting for Deregulation) (18:16): I thank all members who have contributed to the debate on the Financial Framework Legislation Amendment Bill (No. 2) 2012. In particular I acknowledge the contribution of the member for Blair, who, apart from being a very effective local member, is one of the hardest working legislators in this place.

This is the 10th financial framework legislation amendment bill since 2004. It forms part of an ongoing program to address financial framework issues as they are identified, and it assists in ensuring that specific provisions in existing legislation remain clear and up to date. This bill has been put together in collaboration with the relevant ministers and their departments.

This bill, if enacted, will clarify specific provisions in 21 acts, across six portfolios, to establish a better way to deal with overpayments which are administrative or technical in nature. I commend the bill to the House.

Question agreed to.

Bill read a second time.
