At the request of Senator Whish-Wilson, I move:

That the following matter be referred to the Standing Committee of Privileges for inquiry and report:

Having regard to the material tabled by the President on 8 February 2017, whether there was any attempt to improperly influence a witness before the Environment and Communications References Committee, and whether any contempt of the Senate was committed in that regard.

Question agreed to.
