I beg to move amendment No. 177, in clause 51, page 30, line 29, leave out subsection (2).

Subsection (2), which deals with charges, was inserted in the Bill in the other place. It preserves the constitutional convention that the other place does not pass legislation that authorises the imposition of charges or the levying of taxation. We now need to go through the technicality of removing it.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 51, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
