It has been a longstanding view of this side of the Senate that we do not support motions that deal with complex foreign affairs as a notice of motion.

Full speech

Senator MOORE (Queensland) (16:29): I ask leave to make a short statement.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator MOORE: It has been a longstanding view of this side of the Senate that we do not support motions that deal with complex foreign affairs as a notice of motion. These issues demand more concern and more detail than going through this process, and therefore we are not supporting the motion.

Question negatived.
