38 SENATE Tuesday, 14 February 2017 (v) 17 local businesses, community clubs and non-government organisations (NGOs) are supporting the project, and (vi) kangaroos are one of the world's iconic animals and the non-lethal management of kangaroos at Mount Panorama is of national and international interest; and (b) calls on the Government to: (i) congratulate Bathurst Regional Council and its achievement in leading the way in kangaroo management based on real community participation and engagement, and robust science and principles of species ecology and behaviour, and (ii) provide the support needed for other communities to adopt similar non lethal approaches to our iconic kangaroos. Senator McGRATH (Queensland—Assistant Minister to the Prime Minister) (15:42): I seek leave to make a short statement. The PRESIDENT: Is leave granted? Leave is granted for one minute. Senator McGRATH: The government acknowledges the Bathurst community and the way in which they responsibly manage their regional affairs. The national population of kangaroos is in the order of 50 million. Reports are that the cost to the Bathurst council to move 150 kangaroos is in excess of $50,000. The government does not agree that nonlethal approaches are best for all communities. Rural and urban communities across Australia appropriately manage kangaroo populations according to their local circumstances for crop protection, human safety on roads and meat production. The government sets robust standards for the humane and hygienic culling of kangaroos for management or processing. Local authorities must abide by these standards while ensuring the wellbeing of their communities and environment. Question agreed to. DOCUMENTS Perth Freight Link Order for the Production of Documents Senator LUDLAM (Western Australia—Co-Deputy Leader of the Australian Greens) (15:43): I move: That the Senate— (a) notes, in relation to the Perth Freight Link 'Roe 8' Highway extension, significant breaches have been documented and reported to the Minister in relation to approval conditions and management plans, relating to dust suppression, asbestos management, and trapping and relocation of endangered species; (b) orders that there be laid on the table, by no later than 12.45pm on 15 February 2017, by the Minister representing the Minister for the Environment and Energy, the following documents: (i) a summary of correspondence or reports made to the Minister for the Environment and Energy or the Department of the Environment and Energy with evidence of compliance breaches with approval conditions since construction commenced, and the response to each, and (ii) a record of the dates, times and locations where state or federal compliance officers have been on site since construction began; and (c) calls for construction to cease until Condition 2 is met and all such breaches with approval conditions have been investigated by the Minister. Senator McGRATH (Queensland—Assistant Minister to the Prime Minister) (15:43): I seek leave to make a short statement. The PRESIDENT: Is leave granted? Leave is granted for one minute. Senator McGRATH: The government does not support the motion as it prejudges significant breaches to have occurred in anticipation of Commonwealth and state compliance processes and calls for construction to cease based on that prejudgement. However the Minister for the Environment and Energy advises that he can provide Senator Ludlam with a summary of correspondence or reports made to the minister or the department with evidence of compliance breaches with approval conditions since construction commenced, and response to each, and information about whether federal or state compliance officers have been on site since construction began. Senator KAKOSCHKE-MOORE (South Australia) (15:44): I seek leave to move an amendment to general business notice of motion No. 214 standing in the name of Senator Ludlam. Leave granted. Senator KAKOSCHKE-MOORE: I move: That general business No. 214, standing in the name of Senator Ludlam, be amended by omitting para (c) from the motion. The PRESIDENT: The question is that the amendment moved by Senator Kakoschke-Moore be agreed to. CHAMBER

Tuesday, 14 February 2017 SENATE 39 Question agreed to. The PRESIDENT: The question now is that the motion moved by Senator Ludlam, as amended, be agreed to. Question agreed to. MOTIONS Q Society Fundraiser Senator DI NATALE (Victoria—Leader of the Australian Greens) (15:45): I seek leave to amend general business notice of motion No. 210 standing in my name relating to hate speech. Leave granted. Senator DI NATALE (Victoria—Leader of the Australian Greens) (15:45): I move the motion as amended: That the Senate— (a) condemns the actions of Mr Christensen MP and Senator Bernardi in attending the Q Society of Australia Inc fundraising dinner in Melbourne even after learning of the deeply homophobic and Islamophobic nature of the Sydney event; (b) notes that Prime Minister Mr Malcolm Turnbull's failure to rein in Mr Christensen MP fails to reassure the LGBTI community and people of Islamic faith that the Prime Minister and the Coalition value diversity and equality; (c) notes that Senator Hanson was expelled from the Liberal Party for her racist views; (d) calls on the Prime Minister to condemn Mr Christensen MP for attending the Q Society event; and (e) calls on all leaders of all political parties to condemn hate-speech in all forms. Senator McGRATH (Queensland—Assistant Minister to the Prime Minister) (15:46): I seek leave to make a short statement. The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute. Senator McGRATH (Queensland—Assistant Minister to the Prime Minister) (15:46): This is yet another cheap Green stunt. We are the most successful multicultural society in the world. This motion seeks to divide rather than unite. Senator DI NATALE (Victoria—Leader of the Australian Greens) (15:46): I seek leave to make a short statement. The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute. Senator DI NATALE (Victoria—Leader of the Australian Greens) (15:46): There was a time when views expressed by people like Mr Christensen were not welcome in this place. There was a time when there was a consensus that we as a vibrant, diverse multicultural society accepted that there was no place for racism in the Australian parliament. Indeed, it was the time when Senator Hanson herself was disendorsed from the Liberal Party for her racist and bigoted views. Now we have Mr Christensen attending an event where people boast of throwing gay people from buildings; where there is outright hostility and hatred towards people of the Islamic faith. We now have the spectacle where the Liberal Party are preferencing One Nation, really signalling the complete capitulation of the modern Liberal Party, who have endorsed, through their actions, the views of people like Senator Hanson. Racism and bigotry should have no place in the Australian parliament. The PRESIDENT: The question is that the motion moved by Senator Di Natale be agreed to. The Senate divided.
