Litter Pollution (Amendment) Bill 2017: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to amend the Litter Pollution Act 1997 to provide for increased fines where a person is convicted of an offence under that Act; and to provide for related matters.

Question put and agreed to.

When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

Is that agreed? Agreed.

The Senator will be here on his own.

I will get much more business done.

As a formality, to enlighten Senators, the House has not yet agreed that we will not sit next week. It is the final matter this evening. The Senator may be surprised.

Senators should be careful what they wish for.

Second Stage ordered for Tuesday, 18 April 2017.
