Senator CORMANN (Western Australia) (12:50): Mr President, I seek leave to make a 30-second statement.

Leave granted.

Senator CORMANN: I am rising to observe that this is a piece of legislation which the Senate is asked to pass judgment on without a single minute of debate. It is an absolute disgrace. That the Greens political party would make themselves complicit in this absolutely outrageous attack on the job that the Senate has got to do in the interests of all Australians is just outrageous.

The PRESIDENT: The question is that this bill be now read a second time.

Question agreed to.

Bill read a second time.
