I move:

That the Senate—

(a) acknowledges the financial hardship that single parent families who were moved from Parenting Payment to Newstart on 1 January 2013 have experienced; and

(b) calls on the Government to reverse Schedule 1 of the Social Security Legislation Amendment (Fair Incentives to Work) Act 2012.

The question is that the motion moved by Senator Siewert be agreed to.
