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

  That the Senate—

  (a)notes:

    (i)with concern, the continuing damage being perpetrated on the Australian wheat industry by a record run of big wheat subsidies by the United States of America (US),

    (ii)that Australian wheat farmers will now receive $50 million less for the 1993-94 financial year crop than first estimated, and

    (iii)that this has come about because the US has maintained export subsidies over the past year at higher levels for longer than before; and

  (b)asks the Minister for Trade (Senator McMullan) to take up the matter with his US counterpart.
