Senator HANSON-YOUNG (South Australia) (16:00): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator HANSON-YOUNG: The Greens don't support this motion. And, as a senator for South Australia, I just want to make it very clear that we're not interested in seeing this change, which would result in less money going to smaller states, such as Tasmania and South Australia. And I might just point out, while I've still got 44 seconds on the clock, that it is appalling that the Liberal candidate for Mayo, Georgina Downer, has gone to this by-election with a background of saying that South Australia doesn't deserve the share of GST that we get. Why on earth we would want this person, with these views, representing the people of Mayo and being a representative from South Australia is beyond me. She shouldn't be there, she would never represent our state properly and she shouldn't be elected.
