I move:

That the following matter be referred to the Legal and Constitutional Affairs References Committee for inquiry and report by 4 December 2017:

Whether the conduct of the Minister for Communications (Senator Fifield) conformed to the principles of the Ministerial Code of Conduct in relation to his knowledge of former Senator Parry's dual-citizenship status.

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