Senator COATES(5.30) —by leave-I move:

That the Senate take note of the report.

This is a further report on the administration of Cocos (Keeling) and Christmas Islands. The Committee first reviewed matters raised by the administration of the Islands in its Sixth Report on Statutory Authorities which was tabled in the Senate in September 1982. In that report the Committee undertook to advise the Senate of progress made in resolving a number of problems revealed by the inquiry conducted by the Committee in 1982. Today's report meets that undertaking. The Committee has attached correspondence to the report. The correspondence is self- explanatory and, in our view, requires no further comment and raises no matters which require the Senate's further consideration.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
