Second Reading

Consideration resumed of the motion:

That this bill be now read a second time.

to which the following amendment was moved:

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 that:

(1) the Government has slashed:

   (a) more than $3 billion of funding for vocational education and skills; and

   (b) in the last Budget, a further $270 million over the forward estimates in funding for apprenticeships; and

(2) there are now 140,000 fewer apprentices and trainees than when the Coalition Government took office".
