Senator LEYONHJELM (New South Wales) (16:24): At the request of Senator Bernardi, I move:

That the Senate—

(a) expresses the firm view that at all times senators must act in the Australian national interest and not in the interests of other nations;

(b) notes potential serious consequences for senators who fail to meet legal requirements to act in that fashion; and

(c) urges all senators to adhere to this view in their communications and dealings with persons who may be foreign agents or otherwise under the surveillance of Australia's security apparatus.
