I move the following amendment to the amendment moved by Senator Collins:

At the end of the amendment add:

"and, in respect of the Social Security Legislation (Community Development Program) Bill 2018, the Community Affairs Legislation Committee report by 12 November 2018"

That extends the reporting date, which is currently 12 October. We consider that to be too short a time frame to look at that particular piece of legislation that has some significant reforms to the Community Development Program. We think more time is needed to enable the Community Affairs Legislation Committee to review the proposed amendments and to allow the committee to adequately consider the legislation.
