Senator WHISH-WILSON (Tasmania) (12:28): I, and also on behalf of Senators Burston, Hinch, Anning, Patrick, Leyonhjelm and Georgiou, move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes that, at the Brisbane hearings of the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry, Commissioner Hayne has:

   (i) stated that not everyone who wants their case to be dealt with publicly will be called before the Royal Commission, and

   (ii) stated that examination of farm finance case studies was going to take longer than expected, and has delayed examination of natural disaster insurance cases as a result;

(b) notes that the above illustrates that the Royal Commission has not been given sufficient time to properly examine all of the issues within its terms of reference; and

(c) calls upon the government to extend the Royal Commission by a period of at least twelve months.
