     8 Social Services and Other Legislation Amendment (Simplifying Income Reporting and Other Measures) Bill 2020

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 Burney who moved, as an amendment—That all words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“whilst not declining to give the bill a second reading, the House notes the Government’s:

(1)    stubborn defence for three years of its failed Robodebt program which frightened thousands of innocent Australians with false or inflated debts; and

(2)    repeated attempts to cut the pension and social security”.

Debate ensued.

Debate adjourned (Mr Robert—Minister for Government Services), and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for a later hour this day.
