Senator McLUCAS (Queensland) (15:46): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator McLUCAS: The opposition cannot support the motion before the chamber. Labor recognises that timely and planned release of land for housing improves housing affordability.
