(1) That there be laid on the table by the Minister for Finance, by no later than 30 April of each calendar year:

(a) all reports and correspondence received by the Minister for Finance under paragraph 4.12 of the Commonwealth Grants Rules and Guidelines 2017 during the preceding calendar year (noting that the Guidelines do not apply to all grant administrators, including not applying to the allocation of funding by Sports Australia under the Community Sport Infrastructure Grants program ('Sports Rorts')); and

(b) a summary of the decisions reported under paragraph 4.12 of the Commonwealth Grant Rules and Guidelines 2017, including the Central Budget Management System program title, sub-program, grant activity, grantee, total grant value, grant funding location, postcode, and a brief statement of reason for the decision.

(2) If the Senate is not sitting when the documents are ready for presentation, the documents are to be presented to the President under standing order 166.

(3) This order is of continuing effect.

Question agreed to.

Mr President, as you foreshadowed in your earlier statement today, and in lieu of calling a division, I ask that all coalition senators be recorded as having voted against Senator Waters's notice of motion 523.
