Senator SIEWERT (3:59 PM) —I move:

That the Senate—

(a)   recognises the grief, pain and anguish suffered by thousands of mothers who were victims of the forced adoption policies implemented by state governments for decades; and

(b)   acknowledges:

(i)   this pain and grief is on-going, and

(ii)   these mothers deserve an apology for the pain and anguish they have suffered and continue to suffer.

Question negatived.
