Senator MINCHIN —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

  That the Senate congratulates—

    (a)Adelaide mother, Mrs Carole Carroll, on her nationwide campaign demanding a fair deal, equity and choice from the Government for families who elect to have one parent caring for children in the home; and

    (b)Mrs Carroll for raising Australians' awareness of the Government's discrimination against parents caring for children in the home, in particular, by highlighting the gap between the childcare rebate, which is worth $61.20 for two children per week and not income tested, and the home childcare allowance set at a maximum $30 per week with a harsh income test.
