Coronavirus Economic Response Package Omnibus (Measures No. 2) Bill 2020

 

 

 

Statement pursuant to the order of

the Senate of 26 June 2000

 

 

 



Amendment (2)

 

Amendment (2) is framed as a request because it amends the bill in a way that is intended to direct funding for jobseeker payments under the social security law to additional classes of persons.

 

The effect of the amendment would be to extend the availability of the jobseeker payment to persons who hold certain kinds of visas. As such the amendments would expand the class of persons receiving the jobseeker payment.

 

The amendment would therefore increase the amount of expenditure under the standing appropriation in section 242 of the Social Security (Administration) Act 1999 .

 

Amendment (1)

 

Amendment (1) is consequential to amendment (2).

 

 

Statement by the Clerk of the Senate pursuant

to the order of the Senate of 26 June 2000

 

 

 

Amendment (2)

 

If the effect of the amendment is to increase expenditure under the standing appropriation in section 242 of the Social Security (Administration) Act 1999 then it is in accordance with the precedents of the Senate that the amendment be moved as a request.

 

Amendment (1)

 

This amendment is consequential on the request. It is the practice of the Senate that an amendment that is consequential on an amendment framed as a request may also be framed as a request.
