I inform the Senate that the President has received the following letter, dated 3 July 2024, from Senator Scarr:

Pursuant to standing order 75, I give notice that today I propose to move "That, in the opinion of the Senate, the following is a matter of urgency:

The need for the Albanese Government to stand with our allies in investigating the listing of the extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir as a terrorist organisation in light of the group's praise for Hamas's October 7 terrorist attacks in Israel and revelations Hizb ut-Tahrir has sought to radicalise students on our campuses and use Australia as a safe haven to run digital influence campaigns here and overseas."

Is the proposal supported?

More than the number of senators required by the standing orders having risen in their places—
