Summary

Edit

Senator Larissa Waters (Queensland, Australian Greens) on behalf of Senator Sarah Hanson-Young (South Australia, Australian Greens) moved a motion:

That the Senate—

(a) notes that:

(i) a study published last week by the Drug and Alcohol Review found that, in a 10-year period, a total of $7 million was gifted to the Liberal and Labor parties by alcohol interests, $2 million by gambling businesses and $1 million from tobacco,

(ii) the study found that gambling, alcohol and tobacco industry donations peaked both before elections and during parliamentary debates about policy that directly affect their bottom line, and

(iii) this study quotes an ex-politician stating that 'If someone donates $1000, they support you. If they donate $100,000, they've bought you"; and

(b) calls on the Federal Government to:

(i) ban donations from the property development, tobacco, alcohol, gambling, defence, pharmaceutical, banking, and mining industries, and

(ii) cap all other donations to $1000 per year.

Note: this is my first attempt summarise a division so feedback is welcomed.

Note on the note: Thanks for the good work!
