Second Reading

Consideration resumed of 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:

"the House declines to give the bill a second reading because:

(1) the National Disability Insurance Scheme was fully funded when Labor left office;

(2) this bill is nothing more than an attempt by the Government to use the National Disability Insurance Scheme to justify further cruel cuts to the most vulnerable in our community; and

(3) this Bill has unnecessarily caused significant concern in the disability community and threatened community confidence in the future of the National Disability Insurance Scheme - a scheme that Labor created and which will help hundreds of thousands of people with a disability when fully rolled out."
