Senator WEST —by leave—I move:

  That the time for the presentation of the report of the Standing Committee on Community Affairs on breast cancer screening and treatment in Australia be extended until 9 June 1994.

I seek leave to make a brief statement relating to the extension of time.

  Leave granted.


Senator WEST —At the time for the presentation of the report on breast cancer screening and treatment in Australia, we are asking that it be extended until 9 June. The committee seeks this extension of time on the grounds that it is concurrently preparing reports on two other major inquiries: psychotherapeutic medication in Australia and the evaluation of Commonwealth funded programs. A draft report has been prepared on the breast cancer inquiry and the committee seeks further time to consider this draft.

  Question resolved in the affirmative.
