The House: The Day Ahead

After Question Time, the General Debate is likely to follow a similar theme - Payouts to public servants - with the Government trying to keep the attention focussed on crime.

Following the General Debate, the House will turn to the committee stages of the Crimes (Home Invasion) Amendment Bill and the Criminal Justice Amendment Bill (No. 6).

Next up on the order paper is the Child Support Amendment Bill (No. 5) and the interrupted debate on consideration of the select committee report.

Proceedings in Parliament today have been delayed until 2.30 at the agreement of the Business Committee last week.
