Senator MURRAY (4:20 PM) —by leave—I move:

Omit all words after “That”, insert “the Senate is of the view that:

(a) serving senators or members of the House of Representatives continue to be eligible for overseas travel for study purposes under their study leave entitlements; and

(b) the serving senators or members of the House of Representatives should continue to be allowed an accompanying travel companion as defined by the relevant guidelines, so that the cost is no greater than it would be for the senator or member travelling alone.

(2) A parliamentarian must be able to show that the journey will be relevant to their parliamentary work, provide a detailed itinerary and present a relevant and detailed report on conclusion of the study.

(3) That the Senate requires the Special Minister of State to table in the Senate within 15 sitting days of receipt any report of an overseas study tour by a senator presented to him or her”.

I believe this amendment is explicit on the face of it.

Question negatived.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT —The question now is that Senator Brown's motion be agreed to.
