Coronavirus Economic Response Package (Payments and Benefits) Bill 2020, Coronavirus Economic Response Package Omnibus (Measures No. 2) Bill 2020, Appropriation Bill (No. 5) 2019-2020, Appropriation Bill (No. 6) 2019-2020; Second Reading
In accordance with the resolution agreed earlier, I will now put the questions on the bills. The original question was that these bills be now read a second time, to which the honourable member for Rankin moved as an amendment that all words after 'That' be omitted with a view to substituting other words. As we've just foreshadowed and as the members participating in the debate would be aware, a number of subsequent amendments had been moved by honourable members to that second reading amendment. As I've just foreshadowed, I'll be putting the questions on those subsequent amendments in the form that the amendment be disagreed to. After this four-minute division, we'll be having one-minute divisions. The question is that the amendment moved by the honourable member for Fenner be disagreed to.
For the information of honourable members, we've been through all of the amendments to the amendment, and we're now back to the question on the original second reading amendment moved by the member for Rankin, so I'll put this question again in a way that means the government and the opposition don't have to swap sides. The question now is that the words proposed to be omitted stand part of the question.
