Senator McGRATH (Queensland—Assistant Minister to the Prime Minister) (15:59): I seek leave to make a short statement. The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute. Senator McGRATH: The government does not support this motion. This motion is plainly political, designed to waste the Senate's time and delay consideration of important government legislation. In the final year of the last Labor government, the Senate was awaiting answers to 1,399 unanswered questions asked of Labor ministers. The PRESIDENT: The question is that the motion, as amended, be agreed to. The Senate divided.

Senator GALLAGHER (Australian Capital Territory—Manager of Opposition Business in the Senate) (16:03): I ask that the question on the Building and Construction Industry (Improving Productivity) Amendment Bill 2017 be put separately. The PRESIDENT: That is fine, we will do that. The motion will be split into two parts. The first part will deal with the Building and Construction Industry (Improving Productivity) Amendment Bill 2017. Once that is disposed of, I will deal with the remainder of the bills listed on that notice, which is on page 5 of today's Notice Paper. The question is that the first part of the motion moved by Senator McGrath on behalf of Senator Brandis be agreed to. The Senate divided.
