On behalf of Senator Faruqi, I move the amendment on sheet 1383 in Senator Faruqi's name, relating to the fact that child care should be free:

At the end of the motion, add ", but the Senate notes that:

(a) childcare is an essential public service that should be free and universally accessible for all children; and

(b) workers and educators in the childcare sector deserve higher wages and better conditions to reflect the value of their enormous contribution to our community".
