Senator HANSON (Queensland) (17:55): One Nation will be opposing this amendment put up by the Greens to state a case that donations shouldn't come from different organisations. I can understand what they are saying, but then again I find it very hypocritical because the Greens are quite happy to take their donations from environmental groups and organisations that are quite happy to see mining, which provides jobs in Australia, shut down. It actually brings in resources and royalties to our nation—a lot of money. And they are quite happy to shut down the fishing industry, with lost jobs again. And, of course, with their native vegetation management acts they are actually destroying Queensland's farming sector. In that case, they are quite happy to take their political donations—

Senator Hanson-Young: I have a point of order, Mr Temporary Chair. I would just like some clarification from Senator Hanson. It seems that she's misled the chamber. I am not aware of any donation given by an environmental organisation to my party—

The TEMPORARY CHAIR ( Senator Dean Smith ): There is no point of order.

Senator HANSON: So, therefore, we won't be supporting their amendment with regard to political donations.

The CHAIR: The question is that amendments (5) and (6) on sheet 8546, by leave moved together by Senator Waters, be agreed to.
