     9   Treasury Laws Amendment (Enterprise Tax Plan) Bill 2016

The order of the day having been read for the resumption of the debate on the question—That the bill be now read a second time— And on the amendment moved thereto by Mr Bowen, viz.— That all words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“the House declines to give the bill a second reading as the:

(1)        Government has failed on fiscal policy, tripling the deficit and increasing net debt by $100 billion, and putting our hard-earned and coveted triple A credit rating at risk;

(2)        Prime Minister and the Treasurer have failed to deliver the economic leadership that this country needs and deserves; and

(3)        Government’s plan to give a $50 billion tax cut to big business is not affordable in the current fiscal and economic circumstances.”—

Debate resumed.
