I move:

That the following matter be referred to the Community Affairs Committee for inquiry and report by 12 June 2007: Allegations that the Exclusive Brethren, including its leadership, may have been involved in:

breaching Australian Family Court agreements and denying access by ex-Brethren parents to their children;
ex-communicating family members;
prohibiting children from their Australian right to a university education;
banning unions from Exclusive Brethren workplaces;
discriminating against women in Australia;
the use of public monies; and
any related matters.

Question put.
