Senator CHANEY (Leader of the Opposition) —I seek leave to move a motion in respect of that answer.

Leave granted.


Senator CHANEY —I move:

That the Senate take note of the answer given by the Minister for Resources and Energy (Senator Gareth Evans) to a Question without Notice asked by Senator Reynolds on 7 May 1985, relating to the MacKenzie River Dam, Question.

The answer really is quite clear in its terms. This matter does not raise any question of Commonwealth funding. There never has been a question of Commonwealth funding. It is yet another cheap jibe from a Minister whom we are used to seeing behave in that shameful manner. I just wish him to know that he has the contempt of the Opposition for that sort of nonsense.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
