Veterans’ Affairs Legislation Amendment (Enhanced Family Support) Bill 2022

 

(Amendments and requests to be moved by Senator Steele-John on behalf of the Australian Greens in committee of the whole)

 

Statement pursuant to the order of

the Senate of 26 June 2000

 

 

 



Amendments (1) to (3)

Amendments (1) to (3) are framed as requests because, by removing the age cap of 65 years, they expand the class of persons eligible for certain assistance or benefits granted under an instrument made under section 268B of the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 . The amendments are therefore likely to increase the amount of expenditure under the standing appropriation in section 423 of the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 .

 

Amendments (5) to (7)

Amendments (5) to (7) are framed as requests because, by removing the age cap of 65 years, they expand the class of persons eligible for certain assistance or benefits granted under an instrument made under section 41B of the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation (Defence-related Claims) Act 1988 . The amendments are therefore likely to increase the amount of expenditure under the standing appropriation in section 160 of the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation (Defence-related Claims) Act 1988 .

 

Amendments (9) to (12)

Amendments (9) to (12) are framed as requests because, by removing the age cap of 65 years, they expand the class of persons eligible for certain assistance or benefits granted under an instrument made under section 115S of the Veterans' Entitlements Act 1986 . The amendments are therefore likely to increase the amount of expenditure under the standing appropriation in section 199 of the Veterans' Entitlements Act 1986 .

 

 

Statement by the Clerk of the Senate pursuant

to the order of the Senate of 26 June 2000

 

 

 

Amendments (1) to (3), (5) to (7) and (9) to (12)

 

If the effect of the amendments is to increase expenditure under the standing appropriations in section 423 of the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 , section 160 of the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation (Defence-related Claims) Act 1988 and section 199 of the Veterans' Entitlements Act 1986 , then it is in accordance with the precedents of the Senate that the amendment be moved as a request.
