Mr BRADBURY (LindsayAssistant Treasurer and Minister Assisting for Deregulation) (10:53): I move:

That this bill be now read a second time.

The Charities (Consequential Amendments and Transitional Provisions) Bill 2013 accompanies the Charities Bill 2013.

It gives effect to the expanded number of categories of charitable purpose, includes transitional arrangements for streamlining registration of the subtypes of entities with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission, and makes clear that the charitable status of certain entities that were charitable before the introduction of the statutory definition is preserved.

The bill also makes consequential amendments to other legislation to ensure that the Commonwealth law operates as intended when the Charities Bill takes effect.

I commend this bill to the House.

Debate adjourned.
