by leave—I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes members of the:

(i) Australian Parliament will only be allowed to see the final text of the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (the Agreement) once it has been signed,

(ii) United States of America Congress are allowed access to the Agreement draft text, and

(iii) Malaysian Parliament will be shown the draft text prior to Malaysia signing the Agreement; and

(b) calls on the Minister for Trade and Investment and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to allow members of Parliament access to the Agreement draft text.

I seek leave to make a short statement
