I seek leave to amend general business notice of motion No. 1062.

Leave granted.

I, and on behalf of Senator Waters, move the motion as amended:

(1) That the Senate—

(a) notes that allegations of rape have been made against the Attorney-General; and

(b) calls on the Prime Minister to establish an independent inquiry under his ministerial standards into whether the Attorney-General is fit to remain in that role.

(2) That this resolution be transmitted to the House of Representatives for its concurrence.

The question is that the motion be agreed to.
