Social Services and Other Legislation Amendment (Strengthening the Safety Net) Bill 2023; In Committee
The government won't be supporting this amendment, on the basis that Senator Rice herself set out in her contribution. We will consider all of the recommendations of the robodebt royal commission. We will develop, as a government, a careful package of reforms. We will not be rushed into consideration of individual elements of that. We intend to offer a very thorough-going response to the robodebt royal commission to ensure not just better policy outcomes here, but to ensure that something like this can never happen again.
