I move:

That the Senate calls on the Government to implement an immediate moratorium on any new coal seam gas approvals until the long-term impacts of the industry on our groundwater, agriculture, rural communities, threatened species, the climate and the Great Barrier Reef are known.

Question put.

The Senate divided. [15:50]

(The Deputy President—Senator Parry)

Question negatived.
