I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes that legislation amending the Western Australian Constitution to recognise Aboriginal people as the first peoples of Western Australia recently passed in the Lower House of the Western Australian State Parliament; and

(b) calls on the Federal Government to keep up the momentum in moving towards substantive Constitutional Recognition for Aboriginal and Torres Strait peoples in Australia's Federal Constitution.

Question agreed to.
