Summary

Edit

The majority voted in favour of a motion to agree with the bill's main idea. In parliamentary jargon, they voted to read the bill for a second time, which means they can now discuss it in more detail.

What is the bill's main idea?

According to the bills digest, the purpose of the bill is to:

  • provide for the imposition of an export charge on the export of dairy cattle and
  • amend the rate provision to provide for two different rates of charges—a per head charge on dairy cattle and a per kilogram charge on cattle other than dairy cattle.
