Senator WILLIAMS ( New South Wales Nationals Whip in the Senate ) ( 15:34 ): I move:

That the Senate—

   (a)   notes the continued financial problems and huge debt levels afflicting many European countries;

   (b)   asks the Government to call on the European countries that offer farm subsidy programs, to cease these programs immediately to allow more balanced terms of trade; and

   (c)   agrees that the cessation of farm subsidy programs would assist Australian farmers and the global financial system more broadly.

Question agreed to.
