Senator SIMMS (South Australia) (12:07): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator SIMMS: The Australian Greens also oppose this motion. We are strong supporters of the student services and amenities fee. Indeed, the Greens voted against the push to bring in voluntary student unionism that the Howard gave made in 2005. I notice that this is being championed by Senator Day. Apparently putting families first means cutting their penalties and now slashing student services and representation on campus. The Greens do not support that. We are always going to stand here and advocate student services and representation on campus.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: The question is that general business notice of motion No. 955 be agreed to.
