Senator CHISHOLM (Queensland) (15:40): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator CHISHOLM: Labor agree with the concerns about corruption in the federal public sector raised by Senator Hinch in paragraph (a) of this motion. However, Labor announced in January this year that, if elected, we would establish a national integrity commission. At the same time, Labor outlined that body's key design principles. Labor have zero tolerance for corruption and we reiterate our commitment that, if elected, Labor will establish a national integrity commission within 12 months of taking office.
