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

That in view of-

(a) the totally inadequate reporting by the Australian media of the positive and substantial activities of the Parliament and in particular the Senate and its committees;

(b) the need for the public to be advised promptly of the proceedings of this National Parliament; and

(c) the small distribution of daily and weekly Hansards of our proceedings

the President and the Publications Committee be asked to consider and report to the Senate on the feasibility of increasing the numbers of persons who may be supplied with daily Hansards, from ten to one hundred for each Senator.
