Senator WRIGHT (Tasmania)

Following the statement by the Minister for Primary Industry (Senator Wriedt) I understand that there is only one set of forfeiture provisions under proposed new section 1 3c to cover the forfeiture of both a foreign vessel and an Australian vessel and that they apply only on conviction under proposed new section 13 or 13c. I now wish to deal with proposed new section 13d. I understand that proposed new section 13d as printed in clause 12 is to be left out. A new section 13d is to be inserted as stated by Senator Wriedt 's amendment. I do not see any provision that old section 13d in clause 12 should be omitted. Clause 12 states:

Before section 14 of the Principal Act the following sections are inserted: - 13d. (1) A foreign boat used or otherwise involved in the commission of an offence under this Act is forfeited to Australia.

Could I have a brief indication as to where in the amendments we are leaving out proposed section 1 3D as printed in the Bill?

Suggest corrections
