Debate resumed from 26 May, on motion by Dr Blewett:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

Upon which Mr Blunt had moved by way of amendment:

That all 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 Government has failed-

(1) to undertake necessary and major reform of the unemployment benefit and welfare system in Australia to limit fraud and overpayment and to implement a work for unemployment benefit scheme, and

(2) integrate effectively the social security and taxation systems to overcome poverty traps, restore incentive and break the cycle of dependency'.
