Senator REID —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That the Senate is of the opinion that the Minister for Territories and Local Government acted incompetently in failing to-

(a) respond to correspondence from the Minister for Sport, Recreation and Tourism of 27 April 1983, and 17 August 1983 as to the use in the Australian Capital Territory of the allocation from the International Standard Sports Facilities Fund amounting to $2m; and

(b) advise the Minister for Sport, Recreation and Tourism of the recommendations of the House of Assembly as to the disposition of those moneys made known to him on 13 December 1983, as a result of which failure to act by the Minister for Territories and Local Government the $2m has been cancelled and is now not available to the nominated sports:

(i) The National Capital Horse Trials Association,

(ii) the Southern Districts Hill Climb Association,

(iii) the Australian Capital Territory Water Ski Association,

(iv) the Australian Capital Territory Softball Association, and

(v) the Australian Capital Territory Squash Racquets Association.
