Senator HANSON-YOUNG (South Australia) (12:22): by leave—Excuse me, Madam Deputy President. We have a longstanding agreement in this place that if the will of the Senate has not been reflected, and if a senator wishes to have a vote recommitted, that we allow that to happen so that the will of the Senate can actually be reflected. What we've heard from the leader of One Nation is that there was a mix-up in the vote on the Greens' amendment, and One Nation would like it to be corrected so that the will of the Senate is properly reflected. It's a longstanding principle, and I urge you to reconsider.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Thank you, Senator Hanson-Young. My understanding is that we will not process the matter any further until this issue's resolved.
