Direction — Operation of Certain Unmanned Aircraft; Presentation
I give notice of my intention, pursuant to standing order 77, to amend business of the Senate notice of motion No. 3, standing in my name for today, proposing that the Direction—Operation of Certain Unmanned Aircraft made under the Civil Aviation Act 1988 be disallowed, as follows: after 'That', insert 'section 8 of'. Mr President, I seek leave to make a very brief statement in relation to the matter.
For the information of senators, I intend to amend the notice of disallowance motion so that it relates to a particular section in the direction rather than the entire direction. The section proposed for disallowance relates to directions relating to the operation of remotely piloted aircraft near people. This notification is to enable any other senator to take over the other provisions of the disallowance notice.
