Libyan Students

Senator Sarah Hanson-Young (South Australia)

I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:
1) That the Senate notes that:
a) there are more than 650 Libyan students enrolled in Australia;
b) the broader political situation in Libya and the international economic sanctions imposed on Libya threatens the funding available to many of these students;

2) Recognises that a solution was established to assist Libyan students in Canada and the United States of America to access Libyan Government funds to enable students to continue their studies;

3) Calls on the Australian Government to pursue similar action to enable Libyan students to continue their studies in Australia.

 Question agreed to.
