Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (West ern Australia) (Minister for Air) - I move:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

The purpose of this Bill, which is supplementary to the 2 Bills on which I have just made second reading speeches, is to provide the machinery necessary for the collection of the levies imposed by the Dairying Research Levy Bill 1972. The effect of the Bill I am now presenting is that the incidence of levy will be borne by the producer.

In earlier legislation relating to similar Bills, the Parliament debated certain clauses concerning matters of law and justice. These referred to right of access to premises and the time limits to commence prosecutions for offences under the Act. In the Bill now before the Senate, the relevant clauses adhere to those adopted by Parliament in comparable legislation last year.I commend the Bill to honourable senators.

Debate (on motion by Senator Poke) adjourned.
