At the request of Senator Farrell, I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes that:

  (i) Senator McKenzie made a written submission to the Select Committee on Administration of Sports Grants on 29 April 2020,

  (ii) since that submission was received by the committee, further evidence and public statements have raised serious questions regarding matters central to the inquiry, including the involvement of the Prime Minister and his office,

  (iii) Senator McKenzie has been invited to appear before the committee several times but has declined to do so, and

  (iv) as the former Minister for Sport, Senator McKenzie has evidence essential to the committee’s inquiry into the administration and award of funding under the Community Sport Infrastructure Grant Program; and

(b) directs Senator McKenzie to appear in person before the committee, by no later than 12 February 2021, to answer questions.
