I move opposition amendments (4) to (6) on sheet 7527:

(4) Schedule 2, page 71 (line 1) to page 101 (line 20), to be opposed.

(5) Schedule 3, page 102 (lines 1 to 26), to be opposed.

(6) Schedule 4, page 103 (lines 1 to 29), to be opposed.

I would like to highlight the importance of the Steel Transformation Plan, which this government seeks to abolish in this legislation. Senator Cormann, given the state of manufacturing in this country, I do not understand why you would not keep the Steel Transformation Plan and, given the wrecking this government has done to the car and ship industries, will you justify why the government would not retain any mechanism that improves investment, innovation and competitiveness in the manufacturing sector?
