Larissa Waters (Queensland, Australian Greens) Share this | Hansard source
I have received the following letter from Senator Fifield:
Pursuant to standing order 75, I propose that the following matter of public importance be submitted to the Senate for discussion:
The Gillard Labor Government's ongoing failure to deliver fair, just and equitable indexation of DFRB and DFRDB military superannuation pensions.
Is the proposal supported?
More than the number of senators required by the standing orders having risen in their places—
I understand that informal arrangements have been made to allocate specific times to each of the speakers in today’s debate. With the concurrence of the Senate, I shall ask the Clerks to set the clock accordingly.
