I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes the Australian Greens are committed to working with all parliamentarians to establish a Leader's Debate Commission in time for the 2013 federal election; and

(b) calls on the Labor Government to act urgently on this matter to ensure that the Australian people can hear directly from the leaders of all parties during the election campaign.

The question is that the motion moved by Senator Milne be agreed to.
