Description

  • The majority voted in favour of a [http://www.openaustralia.org/debates/?id=2009-11-16.53.2 motion] "That the words proposed to be omitted (Mr Turnbull’s [http://www.openaustralia.org/debate/?id=2009-10-28.10.1 amendment]) stand part of the question." This means that Liberal MP [http://publicwhip-test.openaustraliafoundation.org.au/mp.php?mpn=Malcolm_Turnbull&mpc=Wentworth&house=representatives Malcolm Turnbull]'s amendment is unsuccessful and that the words of the motion that it tried to amend will remain unchanged.
  • The original motion was "That this bill be now read a second time."
  • Mr Turnbull's amendment was the following:
  • ''That all words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:“the House:''
  • ''(1) believes that the Government’s proposed [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emissions_trading_scheme emissions trading scheme] is flawed and in its current form will cost Australian jobs and investment, and simply export rather than reduce global greenhouse gas emissions:''
  • ''(2) supports the Coalition in again calling on the Government to defer consideration of this legislation, which will impose the single largest structural change to the Australian economy, until after the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009_United_Nations_Climate_Change_Conference Copenhagen Climate Change Summit] has concluded in less than 50 days time;''
  • ''(3) notes that as the Government remains determined to keep an utterly artificial and self-imposed deadline of this Parliamentary year and as such before the world meets to address the important issue of global action, the Coalition has proposed changes to the Government’s ETS to ensure the following critical matters are addressed:''
  • ''(a) that emissions-intensive trade-exposed industries remain on a level playing field with competitors in other advanced economies;''
  • ''(b) that agriculture is excluded from the scheme, rather than included after 2015, and farmers have access to agricultural offset credits;''
  • ''(c) that the impact of higher electricity prices on small businesses be moderated;''
  • ''(d) that the coal industry is required to reduce fugitive emissions as technically feasible, but not be unfairly financially penalised:''
  • ''(e) that transitional assistance to coal-fired electricity generators is sufficient to ensure that electricity supply security is maintained and the generators remain viable; and''
  • ''(f) that complementary measures such as voluntary action and energy efficiency are encouraged”.''
  • Background to the bill

Description

  • The majority voted in favour of a [http://www.openaustralia.org/debates/?id=2009-11-16.53.2 motion] "That the words proposed to be omitted (Mr Turnbull’s [http://www.openaustralia.org/debate/?id=2009-10-28.10.1 amendment]) stand part of the question." This means that Liberal MP [http://publicwhip-test.openaustraliafoundation.org.au/mp.php?mpn=Malcolm_Turnbull&mpc=Wentworth&house=representatives Malcolm Turnbull]'s amendment is unsuccessful and that the words of the motion that it tried to amend will remain unchanged.
  • The original motion was "That this bill be now read a second time."
  • Mr Turnbull's amendment was the following:
  • ''That all words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:“the House:''
  • ''(1) believes that the Government’s proposed [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emissions_trading_scheme emissions trading scheme] is flawed and in its current form will cost Australian jobs and investment, and simply export rather than reduce global greenhouse gas emissions:''
  • ''(2) supports the Coalition in again calling on the Government to defer consideration of this legislation, which will impose the single largest structural change to the Australian economy, until after the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009_United_Nations_Climate_Change_Conference Copenhagen Climate Change Summit] has concluded in less than 50 days time;''
  • ''(3) notes that as the Government remains determined to keep an utterly artificial and self-imposed deadline of this Parliamentary year and as such before the world meets to address the important issue of global action, the Coalition has proposed changes to the Government’s ETS to ensure the following critical matters are addressed:''
  • ''(a) that emissions-intensive trade-exposed industries remain on a level playing field with competitors in other advanced economies;''
  • ''(b) that agriculture is excluded from the scheme, rather than included after 2015, and farmers have access to agricultural offset credits;''
  • ''(c) that the impact of higher electricity prices on small businesses be moderated;''
  • ''(d) that the coal industry is required to reduce fugitive emissions as technically feasible, but not be unfairly financially penalised:''
  • ''(e) that transitional assistance to coal-fired electricity generators is sufficient to ensure that electricity supply security is maintained and the generators remain viable; and''
  • ''(f) that complementary measures such as voluntary action and energy efficiency are encouraged”.''
  • Background to the bill
  • The [http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=r4221 Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme Bill 2009 (No. 2)] was introduced as part of a package of six bills to introduce the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_Pollution_Reduction_Scheme Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme].

  • The scheme is an [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emissions_trading emission trading scheme] designed to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenhouse_gas greenhouse gases] in an effort to address [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Climate_chnage climate change].
