The government supports the motion to re-refer the development of a parliamentary foreign influence transparency scheme to the Senate Standing Committee of Privileges, noting that the previous committee had been briefed by the Attorney-General's Department on the implementation of the Foreign Influence Transparency Scheme Act 2018 to support the consideration of a parliamentary scheme, and that the Attorney-General's Department held several discussions with officials from the Department of the House of Representatives and the Department of Parliamentary Services, including to explore options for a parliamentary scheme to leverage the IT infrastructure developed by the department to support the scheme they administer.

Question agreed to.
