Senator XENOPHON (South Australia) (10:38): I move:

At the end of the motion, add:

but the Senate calls on the Government to initiate a review of the Criminal Code Act 1995 to examine the strengthening of the offences in that Act to ensure that they adequately deal with the issue of misrepresentation of age to minors without reasonable excuse and to investigate the establishment of a type of register to record the names and details of those persons who do misrepresent their age to minors without reasonable excuse.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT ( Senator Crossin ): The question is that the second reading amendment moved by Senator Xenophon be agreed to.
