At 5.29 pm on 5 August 2013, Parliament was prorogued until 7 September 2013 when the general election will be held. Accordingly, the Government went into "caretaker mode" from 5 August 2013 until 7 September 2013.
All Bills before the Parliament have therefore lapsed, including the following:
- Tax Laws Amendment (2013 Measures No 4) Bill 2013
- Tax Laws Amendment (Special Conditions for Not-for-profit Concessions) Bill 2012
- Superannuation Legislation Amendment (Reducing Illegal Early Release and Other Measures) Bill 2012
- Income Tax Rates Amendment (Unlawful Payments from Regulated Superannuation Funds) Bill 2012
