(3) if the second readings of the bills have been agreed to, messages from the Governor-General recommending appropriations for any of the bills being announced together;

(4) the consideration in detail stages, if required, on all the bills being taken together for a period not exceeding 60 minutes at which time any Government amendments that have been circulated in respect of any of the bills shall be treated as if they have been moved together with (a) one question being put on all the Government amendments, (b) one question being put on any amendments which have been moved by non-Government Members, and (c) any further questions necessary to complete the detail stage being put;

(5) at the conclusion of the detail stage, one question being put on the remaining stages of all the bills together; and

(6) any variation to this arrangement to be made only by a motion moved by a Minister.

Mr Bandt to move:

That this House recognises:

(1) the tragic loss of life resulting from the sinking of ships carrying migrants off the coast of Lampedusa in October 2013;

(2) the challenging circumstances vulnerable people face in seeking asylum from persecution in their countries of origin; and

(3) Australia's role in responding compassionately to this global challenge.

Mr Bandt to move:

That this House directs the Prime Minister to establish immediately an inquiry:

(1) into the actions of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission and the Australian Federal Police ('the agencies') in response to allegations of corruption and of breaches of Commonwealth laws:

(a) concerning the Reserve Bank of Australia, Securency and Note Printing Australia; and

(b) in the Leighton group of companies;

(2) with terms of reference that require it to investigate and report on at least the following matters:

(a) whether actions taken by the agencies to investigate allegations of serious fraud and commence any prosecutions were appropriate;

(b) whether the agencies properly communicated with each other and worked together in a manner that ensured the highest probability of laws regarding serious fraud being enforced;

(c) whether the relationship between the agencies is such that the Australian community can have the highest confidence that any claims of serious fraud are being properly investigated and any breaches properly prosecuted;

(d) whether Australia would be better served by having a 'stand-alone' Commonwealth agency to prosecute breaches of laws regarding serious fraud;

(e) recommendations regarding future actions that should be taken by government and agencies; and

(f) any related matters; and

(3) to report to the Prime Minister by 30 September 2014, with a copy of the report to be tabled in the House of Representatives at the earliest possible opportunity thereafter.

Mrs Prentice to move:

That this House:

(1) notes that Australia Post is responsible for and has sole discretion over introducing, retiring or changing postcodes;

(2) recognises that:

(a) residents in more than 50 localities from Amberley, Benarkin to Karana Downs and Vernor share the postcode 4306, suburbs which in some instances are more than 130 kilometres apart;

(b) these localities fall within the four divisions of Ryan, Maranoa, Wright and Blair;

(c) the shared postcode is having a detrimental impact on mail delivery services, postal delivery costs and insurance premiums for people living in these areas; and

(d) communities within the 4306 postcode have previously petitioned the Government on this issue and to date have had their request rejected; and

(3) calls on the Government to request that Australia Post allocate unique postcodes to localities which currently share a postcode with a geographically separate locality.
