  • Bills — Treasury Laws Amendment (2020 Measures No. 4) Bill 2020; Second Reading
  • Treasury Laws Amendment (2020 Measures No. 4) Bill 2020 - Second Reading - Keep original motion unchanged


  • <p class='motion-notice motion-notice-truncated'>Long debate text truncated.</p>
  • The majority voted in favour of keeping the original wording of the [second reading motion]( - "*that the bill be read a second time** - unchanged. Reading a bill for a second time is parliamentary jargon for agreeing with its main idea. This present motion was put after the MP for Whitlam Stephen Jones (Labor) proposed the [amended motion]( below.
  • ### Amended motion text
  • > *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 notes the Government:*
  • >
  • > *(1) has failed to deliver sufficient economic support to Australian workers, Australian families, and Australian businesses during the coronavirus pandemic;*
  • >
  • > *(2) has not implemented the full recommendations of the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Corporations and Financial Services inquiry into the operation and effectiveness of the Franchising Code of Conduct report, particularly in relation to applying adequate penalties to franchisors who act improperly;*
  • >
  • > *(3) has consistently failed to deliver adequate support for jobs and businesses in the renewable energy sector; and*
  • >
  • > *(4) continues to refuse to commit to implementing its election promise to deliver the legislated increases to superannuation".*
