Senator O'BRIEN (2:23 AM) —by leave—I move:

At the end of the motion, add “but the Senate condemns the Government for:

(a) failing to deliver on their commitment to develop an Energy Grants (Credits) Scheme to replace both the Diesel and Alternative Fuel Grants Scheme and the Diesel Fuel Rebate Scheme;

(b) failing to prioritise support for the accelerated uptake of renewable electricity generation as a viable alternative to diesel rather than extend the diesel rebate that would lead to long-term greenhouse gas reductions; and

(c) conducting the Fuel Taxation Inquiry only for cynical and expensive election purposes with no intention of a genuine review of fuel taxation issues”.

Question agreed to.

Original question, as amended, agreed to.

Bill read a second time.
