   16   Social Security (Administration) Amendment (Continuation of Cashless Welfare) 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— And on the amendment moved thereto by Ms Burney, viz.— That all words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“the House declines to give the bill a second reading and:

(1)        notes that:

(a)        thirteen years after the Howard Government’s so-called Intervention in the Northern Territory, there is no evidence that compulsory, broad-based income management works;

(b)        the Minister decided to make the Cashless Debit Card trial permanent before reading the independent review by Adelaide University; and

(c)        this proposal is racially discriminatory, as approximately 68 per cent of the people impacted are First Nations Australians; and

(2)        calls on the Government to:

(a)        not roll out the Cashless Debit Card nationally; and

(b)        invest in evidence-based policies, job creation and services, rather than ideological policies like the Cashless Debit Card”—

Debate resumed.

Ms Claydon, by leave, again addressed the House.

Debate continued.

Question—That the words proposed to be omitted stand part of the question—put.
