The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT ( Senator Bernardi ) (16:04): A letter has been received from Senator Moore:

Pursuant to standing order 75, I propose that the following matter of public importance be submitted to the Senate for discussion:

The attack on arms-length peer-reviewed arts funding presented by the Abbott-Turnbull Government's ministerial arts slush fund.

Is the proposal supported?

More than the number of senators required by the standing orders having risen in their places—

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT: The proposal is supported. I understand that informal arrangements have been made to allocate specific times to each of the speakers in today's debate. With the concurrence of the Senate, I shall ask the clerks to set the clock accordingly.
