Senator HARRADINE —Mr President, I seek leave to make a very brief statement concerning the report of the Committee to Review the Australian Overseas Aid Program.

Leave granted.


Senator HARRADINE —I thank the Senate. I shall be very brief. Because of the fact that the last debate folded prematurely, a number of honourable senators were not in the chamber when the report of the Committee to Review the Australian Overseas Aid Program was before the Chair. This document is one of the most important, valuable and, perhaps, even contentious documents on the question of aid to be brought before the Parliament. I hope that the Government will see its way clear to have the document opened for debate some time during this week.


Senator Robertson —The paper has been tabled.
