The Parliament of Australia enacts:

1  Short title

                   This Act may be cited as the National Residue Survey (Sheep, Lambs and Goats Transactions) Levy Act 1997.

2  Commencement

                   This Act commences at the commencement of Part 3 of the Australian Meat and Live-stock Industry Act 1997.

3  Definitions

             (1)  In this Act, unless the contrary intention appears:

lamb means a sheep that has not cut a permanent incisor tooth.

sheep does not include lambs.

slaughter means slaughter for human consumption.

transaction or other dealing, in relation to sheep, lambs or goats, means:

                     (a)  a transaction under which the ownership of the sheep, lambs or goats is transferred; or

                     (b)  the delivery of the sheep, lambs or goats to a processor; or

                     (c)  the slaughter of the sheep, lambs or goats.

             (2)  Unless the contrary intention appears, a word or expression has the same meaning in this Act as it has in the Primary Industries Levies and Charges Collection Act 1991.

4  Act binds the Crown

                   This Act binds the Crown in right of each of the States, of the Australian Capital Territory, of the Northern Territory and of Norfolk Island. However, it does not bind the Crown in right of the Commonwealth.

5  Imposition of levy

                   National Residue Survey Levy is imposed on a transaction or other dealing with sheep, lambs or goats entered into or occurring after the commencement of this Act if levy is payable on that transaction or dealing with the sheep, lambs or goats under the Live-stock Transactions Levy Act 1997.

6  Rates of levy

             (1)  The rate of levy imposed by this Act in respect of a transaction or other dealing with each head of sheep or lambs is 2 cents or, if another amount (not exceeding 8 cents) is prescribed by the regulations, the other amount.

             (2)  The rate of levy imposed by this Act in respect of a transaction or other dealing with each head of goats is 3 cents or, if another amount (not exceeding 8 cents) is prescribed by the regulations, the other amount.

7  Who pays the levy

8  Regulations
