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

That the Senate-

(a) condemns the Minister for Territories and Local Government, Mr Uren, for appointing an Assistant Commissioner to the National Capital Development Commission, with salary and allowances of about $60,000 per year, without first advertising the position;

(b) expresses concern that the newly appointed Assistant Commissioner and her family are reputed to have been very close friends of the Minister for many years; and

(c) is of the opinion that such appointments must not only be made solely on merit and after adequate advertising of the position, but such appointments must also be seen to fulfil those requirements.
