Senator HANSON-YOUNG (South Australia) (15:59): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator HANSON-YOUNG: This motion clearly identifies that there is a conflict of interest between the minister holding responsibility for both the agriculture and the water portfolios. The minister, Barnaby Joyce, has already admitted that he has a conflict of interest because he said that his primary priority is looking after big irrigators, not the river and not the environment. It is a clear conflict of interest, and this Senate is voting today to get it fixed.
