I, and also on behalf of Senator Singh, move:

That the Senate—

  (a)   notes:

     (i)   the online presence of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) provides important competition in news and current affairs content, and

     (ii)   the ABC is accountable to its Charter, its board and the Parliament;

  (b)   rejects any suggestion that the ABC should not be competing in the online environment; and

  (c)   supports unequivocally the right of the ABC to provide a strong online presence.

Question agreed to.
