Senator LOOSLEY —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

  That the Senate—

  (a)notes that the League of Rights is an organisation which maintains and professes views which are distinctive, divisive, racist and morally repugnant;

  (b)acknowledges that the overwhelming majority of Australians, regardless of political preference, reject the League of Rights as an entity which is abhorrent in its activities and politically offensive in its goals; and

  (c)therefore states that in the view of this chamber no Australian Member of Parliament should be associated with the League of Rights or any of its subsidiary or front organisations or any of its forums by accepting invitations to speak at its gatherings, to publish in its journals or to afford its endeavours any legitimacy or credibility whatsoever.
