29      Administration— Commonwealth Integrity Commission

The Leader of the Australian Greens in the Senate (Senator Waters) amended general business notice of motion no. 408 by leave and, pursuant to notice of motion not objected to as a formal motion, moved—

(1)               That the Senate notes that:

(a)                  the Senate passed the Australian Greens’ National Integrity Commission Bill 2018 (No. 2) on 9 September 2019 to establish a federal corruption watchdog with broad remit to investigate allegations of corruption and misconduct, and to ensure strong, independent oversight of the actions of parliamentarians; and

(b)                  public consultation on the Commonwealth Integrity Commission model proposed by the Government ended more than one year ago, but the Government has yet to introduce legislation to establish an integrity commission.

(2)              That the Senate calls on the Federal Government to bring on the Australian Greens’ National Integrity Commission Bill 2018 (No. 2) in the House of Representatives for a vote in the February 2020 sittings.
