Senator Pauline Hanson moved that:
That the Senate—
(a) acknowledges that:
(i) male suicides increase significantly over Christmas, and
(ii) discriminatory aspects of Australia's family law system, which acts to separate children from parents and grandparents at Christmas time, contribute to this increase; and
(b) calls on the Federal Government to take urgent steps to deal with discriminatory aspects of the Australian family law system.
