The original question was that this bill be now read a second time. To this the honourable member for Barton has moved as an amendment:

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

"the House:

(1) declines to give the bill a second reading;

(2) notes that, in every Budget, this Government has tried to cut the pension or increase the pension age to 70;

(3) further notes that the cuts to Newstart in this bill will hurt redundant workers and push them towards poverty; and

(4) criticises the Government for its cruel cuts to pensions and social security".

So, the immediate question is that the amendment moved by the member for Barton be agreed to.
