Motion supporting a Anti-Corruption Commission

Motion
Richard Di Natale 20 Apr 2016

Senator DI NATALE

I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes that:

(i) corruption in any sector of society is unacceptable and threatens the fabric of our democracy, and

(ii) the Government's attempt to legislate the Australian Building and Construction Commission is not about corruption, but the enforcement of anti-worker laws; and

(b) calls on the Government to immediately legislate to establish a national Anti-Corruption Commission to address corruption among public officials and politicians that threatens the fabric of our democracy.

Senator Moore

I have a question around the motion in terms of the formality. My understanding is that the motion that we moved meant that there was no request about formality.

The PRESIDENT

Thank you, Senator Moore. That is a good clarification. We will deal with them without seeking formality and follow the order. We will go down each item. That motion has now been moved. You did move that Senator Di Natale?

Senator DI NATALE

Yes, I did.

The PRESIDENT

The question is that notice of motion No. 1117 be agreed to.
