   18 Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Amendment (Coronavirus Economic Response Package) 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 T. M. Butler 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 that Coalition governments have mismanaged and politicised the Great Barrier Reef, which is a job-generating, economic and environmental powerhouse of global significance, that Australians need to preserve for future generations”.

Debate ensued.

It being 1.30 pm, the debate was interrupted in accordance with standing order 43 and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for a later hour this day.
