  • <p>I raise a point of order, Mr Chairman, about the behaviour of the Leader of the Australian Greens. When you called that division, the Leader of the Australian Greens, in a very loud voice&#8212;I suspect you may not have heard it, Mr Chairman, because of other noise&#8212;made a direct reference to you, suggesting bias. Her words were along the lines of, 'This is the sort of biased treatment we can expect in the future.' She then issued a threat against you. I ask you to ask the senator to withdraw those reflections and that threat.</p>
  • <p class="speaker">Sarah Hanson-Young</p>
  • <p>On the point of order, Mr Chairman: I reject the assertion made by Senator Macdonald. Numerous conversations take place in this chamber. One of them on that side of the chamber, which I heard, included a slur about our leader. If you want to start going tit for tat, we can do that.</p>
  • <p>The CHAIRMAN: Senator Macdonald and Senator Hanson-Young, I did not hear any of the comments you have referred to. You have both made your remarks, so it is now on record. I propose to take no further action.</p>
  • <p class="speaker">Simon Birmingham</p>
  • <p>Because of the outrageous gags being applied by the government, I indicate very clearly that the coalition will be opposing the bill standing as printed and will be opposing the reporting of the bill. The government, along with the Greens, have treated this chamber with complete contempt throughout this process.</p>
  • <p>The CHAIRMAN: The question is that the bill stand as printed.</p>
