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

That the Senate-

(a) in view of the Federal Government's intention to prohibit any mining in Kakadu National Park; and

(b) recognising that mining companies within the Park have been given undertakings, in the past, regarding their rights to explore and develop their interests,

calls upon the Federal Government to provide compensation for the actual and prospective losses which these companies will suffer if no mining is permitted within the area.
