Second Reading

Debate resumed on the motion:

That these bills be now read a second time.

to which the following amendment to the Clean Energy Legislation (Carbon Tax Repeal) Bill 2013 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:

(1) because it would be ill advised to continue without consideration of the broader policy issues set out in paragraph 2, related to the Clean Energy Legislation (Carbon Tax Repeal) Bill 2013 and related bills; and

(2) because of:

(a) the impact of the abolition of the Climate Change Authority and the Clean Energy Finance Corporation on ongoing transparency and investment in climate change;

(b) Government plans for emissions reduction and further development of renewable energy; and

(c) the international position of Australia in relation to climate change."
