As chair of the Senate Standing Committee of Senators' Interests. I seek leave to make a brief statement about the Citizenship Register.

Leave granted.

I wish to update the Senate about the resolution concerning the establishment of a Citizenship Register agreed on 13 November. At the deadline of 5.00 pm on Friday, 1 December 2017 all senators had provided the Registrar of Senators' Interests with statements and where necessary supporting evidence. In line with the resolution of the committee, the documents will be published on the committee web page at 12 noon today.
