Senator KIM CARR (Victoria) (09:32): Given what happened yesterday in regard to proceedings concerning the amendments to the Migration Amendment (Charging for a Migration Outcome) Bill, I should try to explain briefly that my understanding is that the government and the opposition may have the opportunity to reach agreement around the last amendment, which concerns coercion and criminal offences, which I moved yesterday and is still live. There needs to be a further opportunity to discuss the matter. As a consequence, I support the postponement of this item of business to a later hour this day.

The PRESIDENT: The question is that the motion moved by Senator Fifield be agreed to.

Question agreed to.
