Senator SPINDLER —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

  That the Senate—

    (a)congratulates Qantas Airlines on its extension of discount travel arrangements to homosexual couples who are employed by the airline;

    (b)recommends that the precedent set by Qantas in recognising long-standing same-sex relationships be taken up by other commercial enterprises, and the federal Public Service, with a view to extending all fringe benefits enjoyed by heterosexual staff and their families to homosexual couples; and

    (c)further examine the scope for recognising same-sex relationships in the Australian workplace and possible changes to industrial relations arrangements arising out of that recognition.
