Second Reading

Consideration resumed of the motion:

That this bill now be 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 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."
