Debate resumed from 19 October 2005.
Ms ALISON MEGARRITY (Menai—Parliamentary Secretary) [12.46 p.m.]: The Royal Blind Society of New South Wales, the Royal Victorian Institute for the Blind Ltd and the Vision Australia Foundation provide essential services for children and adults who are blind or vision impaired. Each of the three agencies has a long and distinguished history of providing services to the blind and vision impaired communities in New South Wales and Victoria. The merger will allow them to provide a better and more effective service and ensure that the valuable work of these agencies continues. I commend the bill to the House.
Motion agreed to.
Bill read a second time and passed through remaining stages.
