I move:

That the Senate take note of the answer given by the Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business (Senator Cash) to a question without notice asked by Senator Faruqi today relating to recreational shooting.

I rise to take note of the response from Minister Cash to my question on the report Economic and social impacts of recreational hunting and shooting. This report is just another example of vested interests getting their way in this parliament. We have a chair of the Parliamentary Friends of Shooting, Minister McKenzie, seemingly using the health budget to fund her pet project. How is this okay? This is absolutely disgraceful. I note that the senator is launching the Parliamentary Friends of Shooting with SIFA next week, and we all know about SIFA from the Four Corners expose. (Time expired)

Question agreed to.
