Mr RONALD EDWARDS —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House-

(1) supports the Burke Labor Government's decision to buy into the Argyle diamond project;

(2) recognises that the decision to purchase Northern Mining Corporation NL represents a significant shift in public equity in Australian resource projects; and

(3) notes that this 5 per cent interest in the world's biggest diamond mine will involve the Australian community in resource ownership in a way that was not pursued under previous State and Federal Liberal governments.
