Senator Bob Brown to move on the next day of sitting:

   That the Senate—

(a)   concurs with the Opposition Shadow Treasurer, Mr Hockey, that ‘there would have been a legitimate justification for the government to say our debt, you know, our recovery, our economic recovery will be slower if we are running a big deficit and I think it [not proceeding with tax cuts] should have been considered as part of the mix’; and

(b)   calls on the Government to reconsider the tax cuts, in particular those for high-income earners.

Senator Bob Brown to move on 20 August 2009:

   That the Senate, noting the prominence that the new Australian Security Intelligence Organisation headquarters building near Lake Burley Griffin will have on Canberra’s cityscape and that there was no reference of this proposal to the Parlia-mentary Standing Committee on Public Works, requests the Government to provide the Senate with the recommendation from the former Attorney-General, the Honourable Philip Ruddock, that the committee seek an exemption from the Governor-General from scrutiny of this project.
