5. (1) Where regulations made under the Rural Industries Research Act 1985 declare a levy that is specified in the regulations, being a levy that is referred to in column 1 of Part I of Schedule 1 to this Act, to be, with effect from a day that is specified in the regulations, a prescribed levy, then, for the purposes of this Act—

(a) the Research Fund that is established under the Rural Industries Research Act 1985 in respect of goods of the kind in respect of which that levy is imposed shall be taken, with effect from that day, to correspond to the research account that is referred to in column 2 of that Part opposite to the reference to the levy in column 1 of that Part;

(b) the Research Council that is established under the Rural Industries Research Act 1985 in respect of goods of the kind in respect of which that levy is imposed shall be taken, with effect from that day, to correspond to the research organization that is referred to in column 3 of that Part opposite to the reference to the levy in column 1 of that Part; and


(c) the Act or each Act that is referred to in column 4 of that Part, opposite to the reference to the levy in column 1 of that Part shall be taken, with effect from that day, to be a relevant Act in relation to that levy.

(2) Where regulations made under the Rural Industries Research Act 1985 declare levies that are specified in the regulations, being the levies referred to in column 1 of Part II, III, IV or V of Schedule 1 to this Act, to be, with effect from a day specified in those regulations, a prescribed class of levies, then, for the purposes of this Act—

(a) the Research Fund that is established under the Rural Industries Research Act 1985 in respect of goods of the kinds in respect of which levies included in that class of levies are imposed shall be taken, with effect from that day, to correspond to the research account that is referred to in column 2 of that Part opposite to the reference to those levies in column 1 of that Part;

(b) the Research Council that is established under the Rural Industries Research Act 1985 in respect of goods of the kinds in respect of which levies included in that class of levies are imposed shall be taken, with effect from that day, to correspond to the research organization that is referred to in column 3 of that Part opposite to the reference to those levies in column 1 of that Part; and

6. (1) Where a Research Fund that is established under the Rural Industries Research Act 1985 on a particular day is to be taken, in accordance with section 5 of this Act, to correspond to a research account that was established under an Act other than the first-mentioned Act—

(a) money that stood to the credit of that research account immediately before that day shall be deemed to be credited, on that day, to the Research Fund; and

(b) investments that were held for the purposes of that research account immediately before that day shall be taken to be held, on and after that day, for the purposes of the Research Fund.

(2) So far as a Research Fund other than the Barley Research Trust Fund or the Wheat Research Trust Fund is concerned, the Minister may, by determination in writing, apportion the money that is credited to, and the investments that are held for the purposes of, that Research Fund pursuant to sub-section (1) between each of the separate accounts kept under sub-section 8 (1) of the Rural Industries Research Act 1985 in relation to that Research Fund.


(3) So much of any money that is, under sub-section (1), credited to a Research Fund established under the Rural Industries Research Act 1985 as is, under a determination made under sub-section (2) apportioned to the account in relation to that Research Fund that is kept under paragraph 8 (1) (a) of the Rural Industries Research Act 1985 shall be taken, for the purposes of this Act and of the Rural Industries Research Act 1985, to represent amounts paid into that Research Fund by virtue of sub-paragraphs 7 (1) (a) (i) and (ii) of the Rural Industries Research Act 1985.

(4) So much of any investments that are, under sub-section (1), taken to be held for the purposes of a Research Fund established under the Rural Industries Research Act 1985 as are, under a determination made under sub-section (2), apportioned to the account in relation to that Research Fund that is kept under paragraph 8 (1) (a) of the Rural Industries Research Act 1985 shall be taken, for the purposes of this Act and of the Rural Industries Research Act 1985, to represent investments of amounts paid into that Research Fund by virtue of sub-paragraphs 7 (1) (a) (i) and (ii) of the Rural Industries Research Act 1985.

(5) So far as the Barley Research Trust Fund or the Wheat Research Trust Fund is concerned, the Minister may, by determination in writing, apportion the money that is credited to, or investments that are held for the purposes of, that Research Fund pursuant to sub-section (1) between each of the separate accounts kept under sub-section 8 (2) of the Rural Industries Research Act 1985 in relation to that Research Fund.

(6) Where—

(a) money and investments are, under sub-section (1), credited to, or held for the purposes of, the Barley Research Trust Fund or the Wheat Research Trust Fund; and

(b) that money and those investments are, pursuant to a determination made under sub-section (5), apportioned to an account in relation to that Research Fund kept under paragraph 8 (2) (b) of the Rural Industries Research Act 1985, being an account that is kept in respect of a particular State,

the Minister shall, in that determination, specify—

(c) the part of the money so apportioned to that account that is to be taken to represent amounts referred to in sub-paragraphs 7 (1) (a) (i) and (ii) of the Rural Industries Research Act 1985, being amounts that are received by the Commonwealth in respect of goods of the kind or kinds in respect of which that Research Fund has been established that are produced in the State; and

there were substituted for paragraph (a) of that sub-section the following paragraph:

“(a) amounts from time to time received by the Commonwealth before that day under the Tobacco Charges Assessment Act 1955 in respect of–

(i) those levies;

(ii) amounts (if any) paid on behalf of persons liable to pay those levies, by persons other than those persons, in respect of those levies; and

(iii) amounts paid (if any) by way of penalty for non-payment of those levies,

being amounts in respect of which an equivalent amount has not been paid by the Commonwealth into the research account with which, in accordance with section 5, the Research Fund corresponds but which the Minister determines would have been so paid but for the repeal of the Tobacco Industry Act 1955;”.
