I thank Senator Fierravanti-Wells for that comprehensive summary of the Therapeutic Goods Amendment (2009 Measures No. 3) Bill 2009 and Therapeutic Goods (Charges) Amendment Bill 2009. I think that she has highlighted the importance of the Australian government ensuring that the therapeutic goods regime is very contemporary, deals with modern science and provides a supportive regulatory framework. On the basis of that, I commend the bills to the Senate.

Question agreed to.

Bills read a second time.
