Senator RHIANNON (New South Wales) (10:11): In response to Senator Carr's remarks I want to put on the record, as I did yesterday in my speech during the second reading debate, that the Greens also support a standardised consistent tax system and obviously people and corporations paying their fair share of tax. This is precisely why we have raised our objection to schedule 2—because we do not have that here. I will not repeat the arguments in detail, but when it comes to ODA there is a two-tier system. It needs to be put on the record again that the AFP, military and some private NGOs who receive ODA are exempt so we do not have a standardised system. There is an inconsistency within one category that has been brought to our attention.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN ( Senator Smith ): The question is that schedule 2 stand as printed.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (10:19): The result of that vote means that Senator Rhiannon is no longer required to move her first amendment. Is that correct, Senator Rhiannon?
