Migration Amendment (Family Violence & Other Measures Bill) 2016

17 October 2018

Senator GRIFF (South Australia) (15:10): I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes that:

   (i) 16 October 2018 represents one year since the Senate debated the Migration Amendment (Family Violence and Other Measures) Bill 2016,

   (ii) the bill has been listed on the Senate's draft legislation program at least 5 times since then, including for today, where it is the fifth-placed bill, and

   (iii) among other things, the bill attempts to address family violence in migrant families by ensuring character checks of a sponsor are conducted before a visa application can be made, and that the findings are shared with the person they are sponsoring; and

(b) calls on the Federal Government to bring the Migration Amendment (Family Violence and Other Measures) Bill 2016 on for debate by 15 November 2018.
