Dr WOOLDRIDGE (Minister for Health and Aged Care) (4:17 PM) —I move:

That the bill be now read a second time.

The Gene Technology (Licence Charges) Bill 2000 supports the Gene Technology Bill 2000 by providing a framework for recouping costs of the Gene Technology Regulator through the levying of licence charges. This bill is an important adjunct to the main bill, which I have already addressed in detail. I commend the bill to the House and present the explanatory memorandum to the bill.

Debate (on motion by Mr Griffin) adjourned.
