   13 Social Services Legislation Amendment (Payment Integrity) Bill 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 Ms Burney who moved, as an amendment—That all words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“the House:

(1)    declines to give the bill a second reading;

(2)    notes that, in every Budget, this Government has tried to cut the pension or increase the pension age to 70;

(3)    further notes that the cuts to Newstart in this bill will hurt redundant workers and push them towards poverty; and

(4)    criticises the Government for its cruel cuts to pensions and social security”.

Debate ensued.

Mr T. R. Wilson addressing the House—

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