Senator HANSON (Queensland) (12:06): I seek leave to make a brief statement.

The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator HANSON: The government made a comment about people's choice to wear a religious garment of their choice. That has nothing to do with this motion. Wearing a full-face-covering item, a burqa or a niqab, is not a religious requirement; it is actually a choice of dress. The motion moves the fact that this is actually for security reasons. Religion does not come into this.
