Nobody stood and complained when Senator Hanson wore a burqa in this chamber.

The CHAIR: Senator Hinch—

Everyone else has had their say, Chair.

The CHAIR: Senator Hinch, are you raising a point of order? If not, I have made the comment about your attire.

I thought it was just a debating point still.

The CHAIR: We are debating, but I have made my comment in relation to your attire.

Madam Chair, with respect, I was asked by another senator to take a certain action, which I will not do, and I agree with Sarah Hanson-Young who says, 'I'm wearing a rainbow dress.'

The CHAIR: I am in the hands of the Committee of the Whole. We have a number of amendments before us. Senator Leyonhjelm?
