The Australian Greens support this amendment and we thank the government for making it. One of the needs that it responds to is the particular position of students on youth allowance, who will now be able to have the coronavirus payment extended to them. We're hopeful that the other provisions of this amendment over the coming months might also be extended to other income recipients who are also in similar need.

Question agreed to.
