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

  That the Senate—

  (a)welcomes the historic truce announced by the Irish Republican Army in Northern Ireland;

  (b)encourages other para-military organisations in Northern Ireland to join in this cessation of military operations;

  (c)requests the Australian Government to examine whether it can, on behalf of the Australian people, make a contribution to the peace process in Northern Ireland; and

  (d)suggests that a contribution to the Ireland fund may be an appropriate gesture.
