SOCIAL SECURITY AND VETERANS[quot ] AFFAIRS LEGISLATION AMENDMENT (FAMILY AND OTHER MEASURES) BILL 1997

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 Macklin 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 condemns the Government for its relentless persecution of low income tenants and for its failure to make any progress on the reform of housing assistance".

Debate continued.

It being 2 p.m., the debate was interrupted in accordance with standing order 101A, and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for a later hour this day.
