Tuesday, 30 September 1958

Bill presented by Mr. McMahon, and read a first time.

Second Reading. Mr. McMAHON (Lowe - Minister for Primary Industry) [5.9]. - by leave - I move -

That the bill be now read a second time.

The purpose of this bill is to make certain amendments to the Dairy Produce Export Control Act 1924-1954 which are consequential upon the Dairy Produce Research and Sales Promotion Bill 1958. In my second-reading speech on that bill, I explained the role which the Australian Dairy Produce Board will play in the new research and promotion scheme for dairy produce.

The amendment of the principal act under which the board is constituted is necessary to enable it to engage in these activities and also to make provision for the appointment to the board of a special member who will be responsible to that authority for the general administration of the scheme. Opportunity has also been taken to make certain other amendments of an administrative nature only to the principal act. I commend the bill to honorable members.

Debate (on motion by Mr. Pollard) adjourned.
