Senator HANSON-YOUNG (South Australia) (22:18): I move:

At the end of the motion, add:

", but reaffirms that the Senate is a friend of the ABC, notes that the agreement to support the bill involves a non-statutory review which threatens iView, SBS on Demand and online news content, and is of the opinion that the bill should not proceed if the review is to occur".

This is about showing the Senate's support for our public broadcasters, the ABC and SBS, despite the disgusting attack on them from this dirty deal that the government has done with One Nation.

The PRESIDENT: The question is that the second reading amendment moved by Senator Hanson-Young be agreed to.
