Senator MOORE (Queensland) (12:27): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator MOORE: Labor was not consulted on the wording of this motion. The Port Rail Shuttle project is one of several options to address rail freight to and from the Port of Melbourne. Labor believes that expert bodies such as Infrastructure Australia, not the Senate, should recommend the best project from the available options. We understand that this is also the Greens' position. However, this is not reflected in the motion.
