I seek leave to move amendments (1) and (2) as circulated in my name together.

Leave granted.

As I discussed yesterday when I addressed this House, I feel that one of the biggest opportunities facing us as a nation is to actually grow the size of the second-hand car market here in Australia. In this context, the amendments that I have proposed are designed to enable the FBT exemption to be extended to second-hand vehicles that are imported but were made after January 2020. I move amendments (1) and (2) as circulated in my name together:

(1) Schedule 1, item 1, page 3 (line 21), at the end of subsection 8A(2), add:

; or (d) a vehicle of a kind mentioned in paragraph (a), (b) or (c) that is an imported second-hand vehicle.

(2) Schedule 1, item 6, page 4 (after line 26), after the definition of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle, insert:

imported second-hand vehicle means a motor vehicle that:

(a) was manufactured on or after 1 January 2020; and

(b) is imported into Australia; and

(c) at the time of importation:

(i) has previously been used in a foreign country; and

(ii) has not previously been registered in Australia under a law of a State or Territory; and

(iii) complies with the relevant Australian safety standards, as in force at that time.
