I thank the Senate. This motion from the Greens seeks to have government legislation removed from the Notice Paper without allowing for proper consideration and debate by senators. All senators from all sides of the chamber should be allowed the opportunity to consider legislation, contribute to debate and then vote on bills that come through this place and not have legislation struck off the Notice Paper at the whim of any senator or political party—in this case, the Greens. I call on all senators to reject this motion and allow the Senate to do its job of properly reviewing legislation that is before it, including this bill.
