Mr SINCLAIR (New England) (Minister for Primary Industry) - I move:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

The purpose of this Bill is to amend the Butter Fat Levy Act 1965-1966. That Act empowers the raising of levies for 3 purposes, namely for research, for sales promotion and for the operations of the Australian Dairy Produce Board. The present Bill repeals those sections of the Butter Fat Levy Act 1965-1966 which relate to levy for research purposes. As already explained, funds for research in this industry are to be raised by virtue of the provi sions of the Dairying Research Levy Bill. I commend this Butter Fat Levy Bill to honourable members.

Debate (on motion by Dr Patterson) adjourned.
