Senator HANSON-YOUNG (South Australia) (12:32): I seek leave to amend motion No. 353, standing in my name for today, relating to assessing the funds of Libyan students. The amended version has been circulated.

Leave granted.

Senator HANSON-YOUNG: I move the motion as amended:

That the Senate—

   (a)   notes that:

   (i)   there are more than 650 Libyan students enrolled in Australia, and

   (ii)   the broader political situation in Libya and the international economic sanctions imposed on Libya threatens the funding available to many of these students;

   (b)   recognises that a solution was established to assist Libyan students in Canada and the United States of America to access Libyan Government funds to enable students to continue their studies; and

   (c)   calls on the Australian Government to pursue similar action to enable Libyan students to continue their studies in Australia.

Question agreed to.
