Mr THOMPSON (New EnglandAssistant Minister for Commerce) . -I move -

That the bill be now read asecond time.

The measure, which is an amendment of the Primary Produce Export Charges Act 1935, merely provides for the abolition of the existing charge on the export of apples and pears from Australia, to take effect from the date on which the charge under the Apple and Pear Export Charges Bill comes into operation.The present charge is collected to provide the funds of the Australian Apple and Pear Council, but, as the Apple and Pear Board will take the place of the council, there is no necessity for further collection of the charge under the Primary Produce Export Charges Act.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time, and reported from committee without amendment or debate; report adopted.

Bill - by leave - read a third time.
