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

  That the Senate—

  (a)conveys its heartfelt congratulations to 101-year old Mrs Mary Maina for setting a Masters 50-metre world freestyle record in the 100 to 104 age group in Brisbane recently;

  (b)expresses to the management of the ABC and the producers of the program `Live and Sweaty' its concern regarding the inappropriately flippant and mocking manner in which Mrs Maina's tremendous achievement was presented in the program which was aired on 30 September 1994 at 10.30 p.m.; and

  (c)calls on the management of the ABC and its producers to exercise greater sensitivity to the issue of ageism so far as future program content is concerned.
