Senator HANSON (Queensland) (13:14): I stand to support Senator Brandis's motion. I believe there needs to be accountability in this chamber. Senator Dastyari has not explained himself. I find the Labor side to be so hypocritical. They are so ready to point the finger at One Nation at any time on accountability issues, especially Senator Murray Watt. They are constantly going at One Nation. So I believe that, in all fairness for the chamber, there should be an explanation here. It is a protection racket. Why don't they just let him explain himself and satisfy the people not only in this chamber but in all of Australia. Where is your accountability now in this—in protecting someone like your senator?

The PRESIDENT: The question is that the suspension motion moved by Senator Brandis be agreed to.

Senator Dodson did not vote, to compensate for the vacancy caused by the resignation of Senator Parry.

Senator Gallagher did not vote, to compensate for the vacancy caused by the resignation of Senator Nash.

Senator Brown did not vote, to compensate for the vacancy caused by the resignation of Senator Kakoschke-Moore.
