    I thought it went through Parliament and just needed Senate which is where it was to be blocked. I don't remember though.

    Breaking news: Malcolm Turnbull officially let the PM know he is contesting leadership.

    With my first, I took my 12 weeks pay from work, and when that stopped, I started the 18 weeks govt ppl.

    The bill got submitted to parliament the day after Malcolm Turnbull became PM. Now it's just a waiting game.

    If someone was to get pregnant now, due in July, given the the legislation hasn't made it through parliament, would they still be entitled to ppl, even if the legislation got through in a month or so?

    Depends on the commencement provisions in the Bill.

    I do not hold out much hope that they will extend it for those due after July 1 if it passes.
