Senator BERNARDI (South Australia) (15:42): I move:

That the Senate—

(b) further notes PETA's history of stunts and attacks on Australia's livestock farming, meat manufacturing, meat retail, hunting and racing sectors, putting regional jobs and economies at risk; and

(c) calls upon the Commonwealth Government and all state and territory governments to resist all attempts by PETA to:

(i) further jeopardise Australia's economy and way of life, and

(ii) make demands upon Australian taxpayers.

Question agreed to.
