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

That the Bill be now read a second time.

This Bill is consequential upon the Bill which I have already presented to the Senate, proposing the amendment to the Broadcasting and Television Act to provide that licences for commercial broadcasting and television stations should be renewed for periods varying from 6 months to 3 years. This Bill is a machinery amendment to the Television Stations Licence Fees Act 1964-1966, providing for an appropriate method of calculation for a licence fee when, in fact, the licence is renewed for a period other than one year. The opportunity is also being taken to make formal amendment to bring the wording of the Act into line with current practice. I commend the Bill to the Senate.

Debate (on motion by Senator Guilfoyle) adjourned.
