I'll just flag that whilst we don't like the practice of last-minute hours motions, given the content of the bill that is sought to be passed through this chamber today—and, we understand, in the House early next week—and given that it will facilitate staffers and former staffers to provide confidential evidence to the Jenkins culture review, on that basis alone we will support this. I might add that we've been seeking this fix to be drafted all week, as has the opposition, as I understand it. We look forward to actually seeing a copy of that draft bill, which I would very much like to receive very soon, and then we will agree to this hours motion.
