 11 PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE REBATE

Mr Pyne, pursuant to notice, moved—That this House:

(2) notes the Labor Party opposed the introduction of the private health insurance rebate and voted against the legislation when it was debated in the House of Representatives and the Senate;

(3) notes that numerous Labor Party members have called for major changes to the rebate; and

(4) calls on the Labor Party to express its support for the 30% private health insurance rebate or urgently release its private health insurance policy.

Debate ensued.

The time allotted for the debate having expired, the debate was interrupted, and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for the next sitting.
