Tax Laws Amendment (Combating Multinational Tax Avoidance) Bill 2015; In Committee
Yes, and Senator Xenophon did not exactly say that this has been significantly weakened or watered down, like you did, Senator Conroy or Senator Dastyari. He did not say that at all. Let us be very clear, to get this on record. This is a substantial part of this legislation. This is the key reason that we have put this legislation and why the Greens have supported this. It is a strong set of legislation and I just want to make sure that it is on record that what Senator Conroy said was not technically correct. In fact, it was not correct at all. It was a nice political attempt to slur, but we have gone through this in detail.
The CHAIRMAN: The question is that Senator Di Natale's amendments (2) and (4) on sheet 7836, which replace amendment (2) with which the House has disagreed, be agreed to.
The CHAIRMAN: The question now is that the motion, as amended, be agreed to.
Question agreed to.
The CHAIRMAN: The question now is that the committee not insist on amendment (3) with which the House has disagreed.
