Family Tax Benefit (Tighter Income Test) Bill 2014; Second Reading
The question is now that the bill be read a second time. Those of that opinion say aye, against no. A division is required? Ring the bells.
The bells having been rung—
Senators, before we go to the count, I just want to clarify a bit of confusion. The motion was put. There was no division. Then the motion was put to read the bill a second time, on which there was the vote, the ayes and the noes. I thought I heard two ayes. I think I might have got that one wrong! I call Senator Leyonhjelm to tell it for the ayes—and this should not take long—and Senator Bilyk to tell it for the noes.
