I seek leave to amend general business notice of motion No. 919 standing in my name relating to free-to-air TV in the terms circulated in the chamber.

Leave granted.

I move the motion as amended:

That the Senate notes that —

(a) free-to-air television (FTA TV) provides a vital service to regional communities;

(b) access to nationally significant sporting events on FTA TV is important to the community;

(c) FTA TV provides local news content and community announcements essential to the fabric of regional communities; and

(d) existing media rules are being made redundant by disruptive technologies.

Question agreed to.
