Dr KEMP (Minister for Education, Training and Youth Affairs and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Public Service) (9:45 AM) —I move:

That the bill be now read a second time.

This bill has the purpose of introducing changes to the annual registration charge, ARC, for education and training providers registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS). Industry contributions to the costs of the regulatory system are required under the Education Service for Overseas Students (Registration Charges) Act 1997.

This bill is an adjunct to the main bill, as it will provide the resources for the new proactive Commonwealth role, which I have already covered in detail.

The financial impact of the bill will be minimal.

I commend the bill to the House and present the explanatory memorandum to the bill.

Debate (on motion by Mr Lee) adjourned.
