Second Reading

Debate resumed on the motion:

That this bill be now read a second time.

to which the following amendment was moved:

That all the words after "That" be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

"whilst not declining to give the bill a second reading the House is of the opinion that the:

(1) Government has broken an election promise and back flipped on its previous pledge to oppose this measure; and

(2) Government's decision to not continue with the Australian Jobs Act, which was intended to be funded by revenue from this tax measure, is deplorable. This demonstrates the Government's lack of commitment to supporting Australian employment."
