Senator BOB BROWN (Leader of the Australian Greens) (5:04 PM) —I congratulate the Tasmanian parliament for its legislation to ban non-biodegradable plastic bags, and I move:

   That the Senate—

(a)   recognises the damage to our marine species cause by discarded non-biodegradable plastic bags;

(b)   congratulates the Tasmanian Parliament on its decision to ban non-biodegradable plastic bags throughout the State; and

(c)   urges states that are yet to ban non-biodegradable plastic bags to adopt this sensible waste management practice.

Question put.
