Senator CHISHOLM (Queensland) (15:53): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator CHISHOLM: Labor does not support this motion, which calls for significant changes to Australia's privacy laws without any consultation with the Australian community, based on EU laws that have not yet even come into force. While Labor believes that the EU's General Data Protection Regulation should be carefully examined by the Australian government as a model for possible legal reforms here, Labor holds that all proposals for major changes to Australian law should be carefully considered and consulted on by experts, key stakeholders and the wider Australia community.
