Senator WATERS (Queensland) (13:55): I move:

That the Senate—

   (a)   notes that:

      (i)   a recent Galaxy poll found 88 per cent of Queenslanders oppose offshore dumping of dredge spoil in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area, and

      (ii)   the Government has approved offshore dumping of over 22 million cubic metres of dredge spoil in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area in the past 5 years; and

   (b)   calls on the Government to stop approving offshore dumping in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: The question is that notice of motion No. 734 moved by Senator Waters be agreed to.
