Senator MASON —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That the Senate-

(a) supports the Minister for Science and Technology, Mr Barry Jones, in his attempt to establish a Commission for the Future which would draw up options for future development and public debate on technological change in Australia; and

(b) deplores the decision of Cabinet to refuse to consider detailed plans for the structure of the Commission, thus abrogating its responsibility to provide adequately for future development of Australia's technological resources.
