FOR – Bills — Social Security (Administration) Amendment (Income Management Reform) Bill 2023; Second Reading

Sue Lines

The question is that this bill be now read a second time.

A division having been called and the bells being rung—

Senator Thorpe, it's incredibly disorderly to call out when you're not even in your seat. I ask you not to call out.

Senator Thorpe, I called you to order.

Lidia Thorpe

Kids go starving because they can't use the cashless debit card.

Sue Lines

Senator Thorpe, I have called you to order three times. I am the President of the Senate. When I call you to order, I expect order. There are ample opportunities for you throughout the week to make whatever contributions you want on any matter. This is not the time.

Lidia Thorpe

I've got to fight to the end, don't I, because you're oppressing us?

Sue Lines

Senator Thorpe!
