Mr COMBET (Minister for Defence Personnel, Materiel and Science and Minister Assisting the Minister for Climate Change) (10:04 AM) —I move:

That the requested amendments be made.

These amendments are part of a package of changes to CPRS household assistance that will adjust the level of household assistance due to a lower assumed carbon price reflected in the Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook. As a result of a lower assumed carbon price, the overall rise in the cost of living for households due to the CPRS is estimated to be lower than was first the case, and therefore the changes propose a change to the assistance in the CPRS household assistance package to reflect that expected fall in the carbon price.

Question agreed to.
