Summary

Edit

The majority voted in favour of keeping sub-items (4) and (6) in item 34 of schedule 1 unchanged. In parliamentary jargon, they voted for them to stand as printed. This vote was put after Queensland Senator Larissa Waters (Greens) introduced amendments to oppose those sub-items. After introducing her amendments, Senator Waters said that:

Senator Cormann will be pleased to know that these amendments are the ones about indexation, so he can give us the spiel about how that's so very bad, which we all can't wait to hear. These amendments would remove indexation of the federal disclosure threshold. It started off at $13,200 and it's just progressively increased over the years. It's now up to $14,300. It makes a mockery of having a disclosure threshold. These amendments would say that you can't index the disclosure threshold. I commend them to the chamber.
