Senator ANNING (Queensland) (16:25): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator ANNING: On live exports, no-one wants to see the animals suffering as they do, but the facts are that 14½ million sheep have been transported by that company, of which 0.67 per cent died on the journey. That means that 99.3 per cent survived. I'd just suggest that that's about what you'd expect to lose in the paddock; it's no greater than you'd normally lose. And, with respect, there are cruise companies going around the world that might have a higher mortality rate.

The PRESIDENT: The question is that motion No. 887 be agreed to.
