Mr ALBANESE (Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government) (9:42 PM) —I move:

That this bill be now read a second time.

We are reintroducing this bill due to Senate obstruction by the Liberal and National parties led by the Leader of the Opposition. I refer to the minister’s previous second reading speech on this bill.

This bill provides for consequential amendments to various acts in relation to the tax bonus payment provided for in the Tax Bonus for Working Australians Bill (No. 2) 2009. 

Full details of the measures in this bill are contained in the explanatory memorandum.

The SPEAKER —In accordance with the resolution agreed to earlier, the debate is adjourned and the resumption of the debate is made an order of the day for a later hour this day.
