Mr GARLAND (Curtin) (Minister for Supply and Minister assisting the Treasurer) - I propose to move amendments to clauses 1 , 3 and 4 which read:

1.   - (1.) This Act may be cited as the Sales Tax (Exemptions and Classifications) Act 1972. (2.) The Sales Tax (Exemptions and Classifications) Act 1935-1970, as amended by this Act, may be cited as the Sales Tax (Exemptions and Classifications) Act 1935-1972.

3.   The First Schedule to the Sales Tax (Exemptions and Classifications) Act 1935-1970 is amended by adding to item 68 the following subitem:

 

4.   The First Schedule to the Sales Tax (Exemptions and Classifications) Act 1935-1970 is amended by omitting item 69c.

I move:

Omit clause 1, insert the following clause:

1.   - (1.) This Act may be cited as the Sales Tax (Exemptions and Classifications) Act (No. 2) 1972. (2.) The Sales Tax (Exemptions and Classifications) Act 1935-1970* as amended by the Sales Tax (Exemptions and Classifications) Act 1972, is in this Act referred to as the Principal Act. (3.) Section 1 of the Sales Tax (Exemptions and Classifications) Act 1972 is amended by omitting sub-section (3.). (4.) The Principal Act, as amended by this Act, may be cited as the Sales Tax (Exemptions and Classifications) Act 1935-1972.'.

In clause 3, omit 'Sales Tax (Exemptions and Classifications) Act 1935-1970', insert 'Principal Act'.

In clause 4, omit 'Sales Tax (Exemptions and Classifications) Act 1935-1970', insert 'Principal Act'.

In each case the amendment is of the drafting kind and does not change the intended effect of the Bill. Another sales tax measure has been enacted as the Sales Tax (Exemptions and Classifications) Act 1972 and the proposed amendments to the Bill now before the Committee are necessary to catch up with that event. Clause 1 formally declares the short title and citation of the amending Act, and of the principal Act as amended. The amendments to clauses 3 and 4 relate only to the principal Act being amended. I commend the amendments to the Committee.

Amendments agreed to.

Bill, as amended, agreed to.
