Senator BOB BROWN (Leader of the Australian Greens) (9:54 AM) —I seek leave to amend general business notice of motion No. 515 standing in my name.

Leave granted.


Senator BOB BROWN —I move the motion as amended:

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 Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works, requests the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works 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, with any identifying particulars removed.
