Mr Speaker, I thank you for your consideration of this matter, and I acknowledge that there has been a lot of consideration over a lot of time. As a consequence, and by leave, I move:

That the following matter be referred to the Committee of Privileges and Members' Interests:

Whether the legal action in the Federal Court of Australia taken by the Registered Clubs Association of New South Wales against Mr Troy Stolz raises issues of parliamentary privilege or contempt such that the House should formally claim privilege and intervene in the court proceedings to assert the protection of parliamentary privilege.

Question agreed to.
