by leave—I move Greens’ amendments (1), (2) and (3) on sheet 4974:

(1)    Clause 2, page 1 (after line 8), at the end of the clause, add:

        (2)    Items 3 and 4 of Schedule 2 commence on 2 April 2007.

(2)    Schedule 2, page 27 (after line 10), at the end of the bill, add:

3 The whole of the Act

Repeal the Act.

(3)    Schedule 2, page 27 (after line 10), at the end of the bill, add:

Taxation Laws Amendment (Private Health Insurance) Act 1998

4 The whole of the Act

Repeal the Act.

I do not need to speak further to these amendments. They are to abolish the private health insurance rebate so that that money can be spent on ensuring that we have a quality public health system that all Australians can use.
