   22   Treasury Laws Amendment (Tax Relief So Working Australians Keep More Of Their Money) Bill 2019

Mr Frydenberg (Treasurer) presented a Bill for an Act to amend the law relating to taxation, and for related purposes.

Document

Mr Frydenberg presented an explanatory memorandum to the bill.

Bill read a first time.

Mr Frydenberg moved—That the bill be now read a second time.

In accordance with the resolution agreed to, debate ensued.

Dr Chalmers 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 calls on the Government to:

(1)    amend the bill to remove the measures that begin in the 2024-25 financial year, so that measures that provide relief now can be passed by the Parliament without delay; and

(2)    support the economy by adopting the Opposition’s plan to provide income tax relief to every Australian worker from the 2019-20 financial year and bring forward infrastructure investment”.

Debate continuing—

Mr Bandt moved, as an amendment to the amendment proposed by Dr Chalmers—That all words after “whilst” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“supporting greater assistance to low income working Australians, the House:

(1)    urges the Government to introduce legislation that provides greater assistance to low income earners; and

(2)    declines to give this bill a second reading until such assistance is legislated for low income earners”.

Debate continued.

Question—That the amendment moved by Mr Bandt to the amendment proposed by Dr Chalmers be agreed to—put.

The House divided and only Mr Bandt and Mr Wilkie voting “Aye”, the Speaker (Mr A. D. H. Smith) declared the question resolved in the negative.

Question—That the amendment moved by Dr Chalmers be agreed to—put.
