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

  That the Senate—

  (a)notes:

    (i)that the Liberal team in the Townsville City Council election local authority campaign has committed itself in its written policy and in campaign announcements to a rate rise at or less than the consumer price index, and

    (ii)the false and untruthful advertising of the Australian Labor Party (ALP) which without substantiation claims `the Liberals want you to pay $200 more in water rates'; and

  (b)calls on the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters to investigate the false and untruthful advertising of the ALP and to make recommendations for prosecution of all false and untruthful election advertising on an Australia-wide basis.
