Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Media) -I move:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

The Bill now before the Senate is complementary to the Liquefied Gas (Road Vehicle Use) Tax Bill 1974 which has just been introduced. The Liquefied Gas (Road Vehicle Use) Tax Collection Bill 1974 provides the administrative machinery which will become necessary for the collection of the tax on liquefied gas used in propelling road vehicles when the tax comes into effect. Tax will be payable on liquefied gas used in propelling a road vehicle by the person owning the gas immediately before such use. It will be paid monthly by users on the basis of returns of use submitted to Collectors of Customs. I commend the Bill.

Debate (on motion by Senator DrakeBrockman) adjourned.
