Senator McGRATH (QueenslandAssistant Minister to the Prime Minister) (16:26): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator McGRATH: Australia has a strong and robust anti-money-laundering and counterterrorism-financing regime. As the matter is before the courts, it would not appropriate for the Senate to support this motion. The government established a royal commission into banking and financial services to uncover misconduct and provide advice to government on preventing such behaviours in the future.

Question agreed to.
