Debate resumed from 6 March, on motion by Mr Hockey:

That the bill be now read a second time.

upon which Mr Kelvin Thomson moved by way of amendment:

That all words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“whilst not declining to give the bill a second reading, the House:

(1) condemns the Government for its incompetent administration of the aircraft noise levy, in failing to declare Sydney (Kingsford-Smith) Airport a `leviable' airport for the period from 1 July 1996 to 21 February 2001;

(2) condemns the Government for collecting in excess of $150m from aircraft operators without due legal authority as a result; and

(3) condemns the Government for giving priority to the GST at the expense of other important taxation matters”.
