Senator JACINTA COLLINS (VictoriaManager of Government Business in the Senate and Parliamentary Secretary for School Education and Workplace Relations) (12:09): Mr President, I seek leave to make a brief statement.

The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator JACINTA COLLINS: Thank you, Mr President. We are not going to support a motion condemning a member of parliament from another country for the views that they express. The parliament has legislated a visa regime that ensures that all visa applications are assessed appropriately and other provisions in domestic law relating to racial and religious vilification.
