Debate resumed from 14 August, on motion by Dr Kemp:

That the bill be now read a second time.

upon which Mr Lee 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:

(1) notes that:

(a) the broadest possible access to quality training opportunities is a vital part of Australia becoming a Knowledge Nation;

(b) demand for vocational education and training is likely to increase by at least 2.8% a year over the next four years; and

(2) condemns the Government for:

(a) failing to provide any funding to support this growth;

(b) failing to negotiate a fair and reasonable new ANTA Agreement with the States and Territories; and

(c) pursuing policies which damage the quality of training and put at risk the nation's skills base”.
