COALITION SENATORS' DISSENTING REPORT
Coalition Senators express deep concern at the decision of the Labor
Party and the Greens to refer this legislation for further review, immediately
following an inquiry into this exact legislation by the Legislation Committee.
This References Committee’s inquiry has at best been an abuse of process
and at worst a meaningless exercise, given that the same witnesses did or could
have appeared at the Legislation Committee inquiry.
Coalition Senators urge Labor and Greens Senators to carefully consider
this approach which places at risk the reputation and high standing of the
Senate Committee process.
Coalition Senators stand by the Legislation Committee’s report and
recommendations of December 2013.
