Mr JOYCE (New EnglandMinister for Agriculture) (09:21): I move:

That this bill be now read a second time.

The Imported Food Charges (Imposition—Excise) Bill 2015 is the third of four bills being introduced to form this legislative package.

The Imported Food Charges (Imposition—Excise) Bill 2015 will impose charges only when they are considered a duty of excise. The key provisions of the bill mirror those in the Imported Food Charges (Imposition—General) Bill 2015 and have the same operative function and effect.

The bill does not of itself set the amount of the charges and will not impose any financial impacts. The charges and who is liable and exempt from paying the charges will be set in delegated legislation.

I commend this bill to the House.

Debate adjourned.
