I move:

That the Senate—

  (a)   notes that a series of Australian citizens have been arrested and held in prison in China in recent years without prompt notification to the Australian Government; and

  (b)   calls on China to fulfil its diplomatic obligation and promptly notify Australia if any Australian citizen is apprehended in the future.

Question negatived.
