Senator FIELDING (Leader of the Family First Party) (9:51 AM) —I seek leave to move an amendment to Senator Ludwig’s amendment.

Leave granted.

Senator FIELDING —I move that Senator Ludwig’s amendment be amended to read as follows:

Omit all words after “That”, substitute:

(1)   The following matter be referred to the Standing Committee of Senators’ Interests for inquiry and report:         The best mechanism to give effect to an accountability regime for the declaration by senators of gifts and interests in the nature of sponsored travel, accommodation and hospitality, including the development of resolutions, if appropriate, and consideration of how breaches will be dealt with.

Just to make it clear to the chamber, my amendment proposes to delete item (2) of Senator Ludwig’s amendment and to just keep item (1).

The PRESIDENT —The question is therefore that the amendment moved by Senator Fielding be agreed to. The question is agreed to?

Senator Xenophon —Mr President, I think the noes had it in relation to that amendment.
