Summary

Edit

The majority voted in favour of keeping the second reading motion unchanged. A second reading motion is a motion to agree with the main idea of the bill.

This vote was put after the MP for McMahon Chris Bowen proposed the following amendment:

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

"whilst not declining to give the bill a second reading, the House expresses its concern at the Government’s cuts and changes to Medicare, particularly those changes that have made access to medical practitioners more difficult in the regions, including:

(1) cuts to rural bulk billing incentives;

(2) changes to the District of Workforce Shortage and Distribution Priority Area health workforce classifications; and

(3) abolition of the Rural Other Medical Practitioners program".

Votes Passed by a small majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
