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

  That the Senate—

  (a)applauds the decision, on 31 May 1994, by a Perth magistrate to uphold the appeal by a group of concerned people against the granting of six liquor licences for the redeveloped Old Swan Brewery;

  (b)notes that:

    (i)in handing down his decision, the magistrate said that the concerns of the objectors to the licences far outweighed the interest of the developers, and

    (ii)this may well make the continued redevelopment of the Old Swan Brewery financial unviable for the developers, Blue Gate Nominees, a subsidiary of Multiplex; and

  (c)calls on the Federal Government to assist the State Government and the company to stop the development continuing and return the site to its Aboriginal custodians.
