Rate of levy
"6. (1) In this section -
'Coastal Freight Allowance' means $3.01 per kilolitre or such other amount
per kilolitre as the Minister determines under sub-section (4) to be the
Coastal Freight Allowance component of the Import Parity Price of
Bass Strait stabilized crude petroleum oil;
'levy amount' means an amount equal to 65% of the amount specified in the
Coastal Freight Allowance calculated to the nearest cent.

"(2) The rate of adjustment levy is the levy amount per kilolitre.

"(3) Where, because of a variation of the Coastal Freight Allowance, the rate of adjustment levy is altered, the rate of adjustment levy as so altered has effect in relation to unstabilized crude petroleum oil produced on or after the day on which the alteration occurs.

"(4) The Minister may, by notice in writing published in the Gazette, determine, from time to time, the amount per kilolitre that is to be, from the day specified in the notice (not being a day earlier than the day on which the notice is published in the Gazette), the Coastal Freight Allowance component of the Import Parity Price of Bass Strait stabilized crude petroleum oil.

"(5) In making a determination under sub-section (4), the Minister may have regard to -
(a) the cost of transporting stabilized crude petroleum oil by sea between
places in Australia;
(b) the cost of transporting stabilized crude petroleum oil by pipeline
between places in Australia; and
(c) such other matters as the Minister thinks appropriate.

"(6) The provisions of sections 48 (other than paragraph (1) (a) and sub-section (2)), 49, 49A and 50 of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901 apply in relation to determinations made under sub-section (4) as if references in those provisions to regulations were references to determinations under sub-section (4).

"(7) Determinations made for the purposes of sub-section (4) shall be deemed not to be Statutory Rules within the meaning of the Statutory Rules Publication Act 1903.".
