Senator PARRY (3:51 PM) —by leave—I move:

That the provisions of Schedule 1 of the Tax Laws Amendment (2008 Measures No. 1) Bill 2008 be referred to the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters for inquiry and report by June 2009.

Senator Bartlett —Mr President, I rise on a point of order. I seek advice before voting on this motion. Can I clarify that referring this schedule of the bill does not prevent it from being debated by the Senate prior to then? Can I also clarify whether referring it until June 2009 is accurate or whether it is a typographical error?

The PRESIDENT —In answer to your first question, it only refers to the provisions of the bill, not the bill itself. Senator Parry, is that a mistake?

Senator PARRY —It is not a typographical error; it is 2009.

Question agreed to.
