Selection of Bills Committee; Report
I rise to inform the chamber that Labor will be supporting the government's amendments. We believe that these bills have been adequately inquired into during the last parliament, and we need to get on with the job of making Australians safe and protecting our national security. We can certainly debate the merits of these bills when they're brought before the Senate, but they should not be delayed any further.
I also foreshadow that I will be moving another amendment to refer one other bill. The terms of that proposed referral are circulated in the chamber.
