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

  That the Senate—

  (a)notes that:

    (i)startling new figures reveal that 324 000, or more that one in four South Australians over the age of 15, now receive pensions or unemployment benefits, and

    (ii)this figure does not include the 32 000 students receiving Austudy funding; and

  (b)urges the Federal Government to heed the call of Mr Ian Harrison from the South Australian Employers' Chamber of Commerce and Industry that the Federal Government needs to move away from wealth redistribution policies, toward providing more incentives for employers to hire people.
