Senator O'BRIEN (3:35 AM) —I move opposition amendment (3) on sheet 2797:

(3) Schedule 1, page 34 (after line 16), at the end of Part 1, add:

152A Paragraph 162(1)(f)

After “utilised”, insert “as an eligible renewable energy source, with particular reference to:

(i) net greenhouse emissions; and

(ii) biodiversity; and

(iii) the level of biomass extraction under the Regional Forest Agreements; and

(iv) the plantation industry;”.

This is the amendment to mandate the particular term of the review that we flagged very early in this debate. I do not propose to go over the basis for that position. It is already in Hansard, and there is an amount of business to be dealt with this morning. I urge senators to support our position.
