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

  That the Senate—

  (a)notes that the total funding for health research in the 1994-95 Budget will do absolutely nothing to increase health research funding to 2 per cent of the health budget, a promise made by this Government at the 1993 Federal Election and confirmed by the former Minister for Health (Senator Richardson); and

  (b)condemns the Government for yet another broken promise which will undermine the research effort of Australia and diminish the health hopes of many Australians.
