In accordance with the resolution agreed to on Monday, 18 November 2013—

The order of the day having been read for the resumption of the debate on the question—That the bills be now read a second time— And on the amendment moved thereto by Mr Butler to the Clean Energy Legislation (Carbon Tax Repeal) Bill 2013, viz.— That all words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“the House declines to give the bill a second reading:

(1)    because it would be ill advised to continue without consideration of the broader policy issues set out in paragraph 2, related to the Clean Energy Legislation (Carbon Tax Repeal) Bill 2013 and related bills; and

(2)    because of:

(a)    the impact of the abolition of the Climate Change Authority and the Clean Energy Finance Corporation on ongoing transparency and investment in climate change;

(b)   Government plans for emissions reduction and further development of renewable energy; and

(c)    the international position of Australia in relation to climate change.”—

Debate resumed.

Mr Bandt moved, as an amendment, to the amendment proposed by Mr Butler—

That all words after “House” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

(1)    “rejects this bill and the related bills and recognises that global warming is an enormous threat to the Australian way of life and is getting worse; and

(2)    calls on the government to take stronger action to protect the Australian people from climate change.”

Debate continued.

Mr Hunt (Minister for the Environment) addressed the House in accordance with the resolution.
