I seek leave to move two amendments to the motion.

Leave granted.

I move the amendments circulated in my name:

After subparagraph (a)(iv), insert:

(v)   the United Nations has urged developed countries to commit to a 0.7 per cent gross national income (GNI) target by 2015 to meet the Millennium Development Goals;

Paragraph (c), omit all words after “Australia’s aid program and”, substitute “to work towards 0.7 per cent of GNI allocated to overseas aid by increasing funding to 0.5 per cent of GNI by 2017-18”.
