Mr CHAMPION (Wakefield) (12:01): by leave—On behalf of the Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade I present a corrigendum to the report entitled A world without the death penalty: Australia's advocacy for the abolition of the death penalty, which was presented by the Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade of the previous parliament.

I present chapter 1 of the report entitled A world without the death penalty: Australia's advocacy for the abolition of the death penalty. For the information of the House, the committee's report for the inquiry into Australia's advocacy for the abolition of the death penalty was presented on 5 May 2016, at the end of the previous parliament. Inadvertently, however, the first chapter, entitled 'Introduction and background', was not included in the report as presented. On behalf of the committee I now present chapter 1 of the report, which sets out the context and conduct of the inquiry, the structure of the report and summarises arguments for why the death penalty should be abolished worldwide.
