Senator RONALDSON (Victoria) (13:19): I, and also on behalf of Senator Macdonald, move:

That the Senate—

(a) recognises that Buckingham Palace has issued two official portraits to mark the Diamond Jubilee of the ascension to the throne of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Australia;

(b) is concerned that these portraits are not available for members and senators of the Australian Parliament to distribute to organisations in their electorate under the Department of Finance and Deregulation’s Constituents’ Request Program; and

(c) calls on the Government to expand the Constituents’ Request Program to include access to these official portraits of Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh in their Diamond Jubilee year, and to so enable members and senators of the Australian Parliament to share with organisations in their community images of Australia’s Head of State.
