Social Security Legislation Rewrite Bill – Committee Stage – Part 3 – Video 2


I call the Honourable Louise upstone thank you madam chair so I do intend to take the maximum number of calls in this opportunity in part three and there were questions I specifically asked the minister in part two that there wasn’t to reply to so I am hopeful that the minister in the chair will answer questions specific questions in this part she’s shaking your head which isn’t particularly encouraging and as I’ve said in the earlier parts of this debate there is no opportunity for scrutiny outside the house for this particular piece of legislation and for the SOP that the Minister has tabled so I do hope that the minister takes this seriously as this is the only opportunity for scrutiny so what what I wanted to raise in in part three of this legislation diera similar to part two multiple sub parts so I want to just ask a couple of them one in ninety one is basically talking about what the obligations are and then what the responding sanctions are so we’ll talk more about the sanctions and a later part of the debate but I’m interested specifically in sub part three which is around beneficiaries obligations and the part that I’m looking for that I’m surprised that the minister hasn’t included in this is around people with disabilities and I want to speak quite clearly about particularly those who have children with disabilities who have lifelong permanent disabilities and the obligation on an annual basis that they have to file paperwork and medical certificates to confirm that they yes are still permanently disabled and I would have thought that that would have been a simple change that the Minister could have taken on given her significant discussions around improving support with people just with disabilities and so I’ve been looking to see for the change that has been included in part three around beneficiaries obligations because madam chair there is an obligation that I would have thought for all of the minister’s words around improving the welfare system that there would have been the first on the list I apologize to the Honorable me and other time has come for me to report progress well cheer madam Speaker the committee has further considered the families Commission Act repeal bill and reports without amendment the committee has also considered the Social Security legislation rewrite bill and reports progress madam Speaker I move that the report be adopted the question is that the port the report be adopted those of that opinion will say aye to the contrary now the eyes have it the families Commission Act repeal bill is sit down for third reading next sitting day and the Social Security legislation rewrite bill is sit down for further consideration and committee next sitting day the house stands adjourned until 2:00 p.m. [Music]
