The Greens won't be supporting these amendments. We negotiated with the government to get an amendment in the House to extend the time period of this scheme until December next year. We think that that's a good period of time to have this workplace bonus in place. We're happy with a date towards the end of next year, potentially, to see whether it should be continued. But at this stage we are not supportive of moving the amendments that would extend it now.

The CHAIR: The question before the chair is that the request for amendments be agreed to. The amendments are requests (1) and (2) on sheet 1681 moved by Senator Duniam.
