First of all I thank Senator Faruqi for her incredibly productive engagement on this bill and for confirming her support for its passage. However, the government will not be supporting this amendment for the reasons that I have outlined and that I understand Senator Ruston outlined. It does require significant system and software changes, for not just Services Australia but also third-party software providers, because of the interface with thousands of childcare providers.
