   11 Social Services Legislation Amendment (Omnibus Savings and Child Care Reform) Bill 2017

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—

Debate resumed by Ms Macklin who moved, as an amendment—That all the words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“The House:

(1)    declines to give the bill a second reading because it will hurt pensioners, families, new mums and young Australians while holding child care assistance and the National Disability Insurance Scheme to ransom; and

(2)    calls on the Government to:

(a)    drop their unfair cuts to pensioners, families, new mums and young Australians; and

(b)   fix their child care changes so that vulnerable and disadvantaged children are not worse off and Indigenous and country services do not face closure”.

Debate ensued.

Ms Ellis addressing the House—

It being 1.30 pm, the debate was interrupted in accordance with standing order 43, Ms Ellis was granted leave to continue her speech when the debate is resumed, and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for a later hour this day.
