Senator MILNE (10:05 AM) —by leave—I move Australian Greens amendments (2) and (3) on sheet 6124 together:

(2)    Clause 13, page 12 (after line 16), before paragraph (1)(a), insert:

            (aa)    the size of the building; and

            (ab)    the electricity consumption for the building for the preceding calendar year; and

            (ac)    the natural gas consumption, if any, for the building for the preceding calendar year; and

(3)    Clause 13, page 12 (after line 24), before paragraph (2)(a), insert:

            (aa)    the size of area of the building; and

            (ab)    the electricity consumption for the area of the building for the preceding calendar year; and

            (ac)    the natural gas consumption, if any, for the area of the building for the preceding calendar year; and

The chamber having rejected the first Greens amendment, I have moved these amendments which basically say that the same harvesting of data should occur but only when a neighbour’s rating is done for mandatory disclosure purposes. Obviously this would harvest much less data, but it is better than nothing. I am really shocked at what little concern there is about this issue, which is so critical to climate change.

Question negatived.
