     8 Farm Household Support Amendment (Relief Measures) Bill (No. 2) 2019

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 Mr Fitzgibbon 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 criticises the Government for:

(1)    its ad hoc approach to drought assistance;

(2)    failing to deliver a comprehensive drought plan; and

(3)    forcing drought-affected farmers off the Farm Household Allowance”.

Debate ensued.

Ms Sharkie addressing the House—

It being 1.30 pm, the debate was interrupted in accordance with standing order 43, Ms Sharkie was granted leave to continue her speech when the debate is resumed, and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for a later hour this day.
