Senator McGRATH (QueenslandAssistant Minister to the Prime Minister) (15:50): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator McGRATH: The coalition government does not support Labor's retiree tax which will take money out of the pockets of one million Australians, including 230,000 pensioners. Labor's policy will overwhelmingly hit lower- and middle-income earners, with 86 per cent of the individuals impacted on taxable incomes of less than $37,000. The government calls on the Labor Party to release their costings immediately.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: The question is that notice of motion No. 765 standing in the name of Senator Whish-Wilson be agreed to.
