Summary

Edit

The majority voted in favour of a motion to keep unchanged the usual second reading motion "that the bill be read for a second time" (which is parliamentary jargon for agreeing with the main idea of the bill). This motion was put after Rankin MP Jim Chalmers (Labor) introduced an amendment to change the wording.

MP Chalmers explained the rationale behind his amendment in his contribution to the debate.

Amendment text

That all words after "That" be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

"whilst not declining to give these bills a second reading, the House:

(1) notes that this legislation gives the Treasurer extraordinary powers to include those not currently eligible for the JobKeeper Payment; and

(2) calls on the Treasurer to use his power under this legislation to ensure more jobs are protected and that struggling, otherwise viable businesses and organisations are able to access the JobKeeper Payment".

Votes Passed by a small majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
