Senator XENOPHON (10:10 AM) —I move:

(1)   That the Senate calls on the Government to make a reference to the Productivity Commission requiring modelling of alternative emissions trading schemes including:

(a)   a conventional baseline-and-credit scheme;

(b)   an intensity model;

(c)   a carbon tax;

(d)   a consumption-based carbon tax; and

(e)   the McKibbin model;

   with a view to determining which scheme design (including the Government’s Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS) and schemes with higher targets) provides the best environmental and economic outcomes.

(2)   That the Productivity Commission’s report on modelling under paragraph (1) be laid on the table by 6 August 2009 to inform the debate on the CPRS bills.

(3)   That there be laid on the table by 6 August 2009 all documents held by the Productivity Commission relating to the design and economic impacts of the Government’s CPRS.
