Mr GRASSBY (Riverina) (Minister for Immigration) - I move:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

The purpose of this Bill, which is complemen tary to the Meat Export Charge Bill 1973, is to provide the machinery necessary for the collection of the export charge imposed by the Meat Export Charge Bill 1973. The Bill provides for the Act to come into operation on the same day as the Meat Export Charge Act. It defines the types of meat and meat products subject to the charge which will be payable within 28 days after the end of the month in which the meat is exported. Provision has been made for remissions or refunds of the charge should the meat be condemned or rejected for human consumption. The remaining provisions of the Bill are related to the administrative procedures necessary to collect the charge. I commend the Bill to honourable members.

Debate (on motion by Mr Sinclair) adjourned.
