Family Assistance Legislation Amendment (Child Care Subsidy) Bill 2021; Second Reading
I now move the second reading amendment standing in my name, on sheet 1384, which pertains to the fact that we are in a climate crisis and our kids need us to deal with that properly:
At the end of the motion, add ", and the Senate calls on the Government to acknowledge that:
(a) it has a duty of care to avoid the harmful impacts of climate change on Australia's children; and
(b) in light of the latest IPCC report, supporting new and expanded coal, oil and gas projects is negligent dereliction of that duty".
