Senator GALLAGHER (Australian Capital TerritoryManager of Opposition Business in the Senate) (16:12): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator GALLAGHER: The opposition will not be supporting this motion today, but I did want to place on the record that, just earlier in formal business, the Senate supported the establishment of a select committee to inquire into a national integrity commission and to report back to the Senate by 15 August. It will canvass a whole range of issues that we believe are worth being examined further before taking a final position on the issue of a national integrity commission. So we are not in a position today to support this motion from the Greens.
