I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I will move:

That the Senate—

(a) acknowledges that Australia is in recession for the first time in 30 years;

(b) notes that the Government is actively considering bringing forward $48 billion worth of personal income tax cuts in the October Budget that will give even more cash to millionaires and the super wealthy;

(c) recognises that the Government is cutting the Coronavirus Supplement to the JobSeeker Payment by $300 a fortnight on 25 September 2020 and refuses to confirm that the rate of JobSeeker will not return to $40 a day in December; and

(d) calls on the Government to drop planned tax cuts to the wealthy and invest in those on income support and on low incomes.
