Legal and Constitutional Affairs Legislation Committee; Reference
A point of order, Acting Deputy President: Senator Ayres is imputing motive about the motion and the inquiry. It is not his role to impute motive. If he doesn't want the inquiry, he can state the reasons why, but to say it's some stunt is to impute motive. That's partisan, and this chamber deserves better respect about a process. This is a house of review. We're entitled to review legislative acts of parliament without being vilified to the extent that Senator Ayres has done tonight.
