I seek leave to amend general business notice of motion No. 908 to add the name of Senator Waters to it as a second mover.

Leave granted.

I, and also on behalf of Senator Waters, move:

That the Senate calls on the Government to:

(a) halt the sale of Cubbie Station;

(b) release the written advice provided by the Foreign Investment Review Board to the Treasurer (Mr Swan) regarding the proposed sale of Cubbie Station announced on Friday, 31 August 2012; and

(c) complete and release a national audit of foreign ownership of water entitlements.

The question is that the motion moved by Senator Hanson-Young and Senator Waters be agreed to.
