He said there is also a "100 pounds" fine for every day that a person not eligible to sit does sit in the Senate.

"Whether or not debt would be waived as it has been on previous occasions is a matter for the Special Minister of State, senator Scott Ryan," he said.

The former deputy Greens leader was first elected in 2007 and retained his West Australian seat at the 2013 and 2016 elections.
