Senator O'NEILL (New South Wales) (13:00): Labor will support these government amendments to the Treasury Laws Amendment (Junior Minerals Exploration Incentive) Bill 2017. The first amendment will be to the 2017-18 credit year, as indicated by the minister, reflecting the date on which the bill passes the parliament. The start date of the scheme is linked to royal assent, and that is appropriate and Labor will support it. The other amendment, we understand, is to clarify the use and availability of credits by junior explorers, according to the intent of the bill. Therefore, Labor will also support that amendment.

The TEMPORARY CHAIR ( Senator Ketter ): The question is that the request for amendment (1) be agreed to.

Question agreed to.

The TEMPORARY CHAIR: The question now is that amendment (2) be agreed to.
