   11 National Disability Insurance Scheme Savings Fund Special Account Bill 2016

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 Macklin who moved, as an amendment—That all the words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

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

(1)    the National Disability Insurance Scheme was fully funded when Labor left office;

(2)    this bill is nothing more than an attempt by the Government to use the National Disability Insurance Scheme to justify further cruel cuts to the most vulnerable in our community; and

(3)    this bill has unnecessarily caused significant concern in the disability community and threatened community confidence in the future of the National Disability Insurance Scheme - a scheme that Labor created and which will help hundreds of thousands of people with a disability when fully rolled out.”

Debate ensued.

Mr Hill addressing the House—

It being 1.30 pm, the debate was interrupted in accordance with standing order 43, Mr Hill 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.
