I move:

That the Senate—
notes that the Government:
has announced an additional $1 million to help the people of Lebanon clear unexploded cluster munitions, and
describes itself as taking a ‘leading role’ in negotiating a new treaty to limit the use of cluster weapons; and
calls on the Government to show real international leadership and delay the impending purchase of new cluster weapons until after the Oslo negotiations to limit the spread of cluster weapons.

Question put.
