Mrs BRONWYN BISHOP (Minister for Aged Care) (4:10 PM) —I move:

That the amendments be agreed to.

The government has moved a number of amendments to the Civil Aviation Amendment Bill 1998. These amendments have been agreed to by the opposition. The amendments are of a machinery nature which clarify the legal validity of existing arrangements in relation to regulatory services performed by persons outside the Civil Aviation Safety Authority who are authorised persons or delegates of CASA. Specifically, the amendments are required to achieve the following objectives: firstly, to make it clear that CASA's fee regime applies only to regulatory services done by CASA; secondly, to authorise third parties outside CASA to charge market fees for providing regulatory services; and, thirdly, to validate retrospectively the existing charging practices of third parties outside CASA. I commend this bill and the government amendments to the House.
