Electoral Legislation Amendment (Electoral Funding and Disclosure Reform) Bill 2018; Reference to Committee
The opposition will be supporting this motion. This motion represents a key commitment secured by Labor's shadow special minister of state, Senator Farrell, during the recent debate on foreign donations legislation. This motion will guarantee a review of the practical application of the recently passed foreign donation laws, ensuring advocacy work is protected and the laws operate as intended. The opposition thanks the government for upholding this commitment, and we commend the referral to the Senate.
