I seek leave to table a document relating to a petition to the House of Representatives tabled on 15 June, which was signed by 70,540 people, calling on the government to provide exemptions to Australia's COVID-19 international travel ban for parents of Australian citizens and permanent residents to be reunited with their children in Australia, and for reunification with family to be considered a compelling and compassionate reason by the Australian Border Force. I understand that I have the agreement of whips to table the document.

Leave granted.

I table the documents.
