Debate resumed from 7 September, on motion by Mr Duffy:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

upon which Mr Lloyd had moved by way of amendment:

That all words after 'That' be omitted with a view to substituting the following words: 'Whilst not declining to give the bill a second reading, the House deplores the action of the Government in extending the use of fees in the broadcasting area beyond cost recovery to a new source of taxation revenue'.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Millar) —Before the debate on this Bill is resumed I remind the House that it has been agreed that a general debate be allowed covering this Bill and the Television Stations Licence Fees Amendment Bill 1983.
