I move:

That the Senate—

  (a)   reaffirms its commitment to increase overseas development assistance (ODA) to at least 0.5 per cent of gross national income (GNI) by 2015; and

  (b)   calls on the Government to implement a timetable for raising ODA to 0.7 per cent of GNI, the international aid target called for by the United Nations.
