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

  That the time for the presentation of the report of the Standing Committee on Environment, Recreation and the Arts on waste disposal facilities and methods be extended to 22 September 1994.

I seek leave to make a brief statement relating to the notice I have just given.

  Leave granted.


Senator DEVEREUX —The inquiry into waste disposal has proven to be somewhat larger in scope and more complex than was anticipated when the terms of reference were given to the committee on 17 November 1993. A large amount of evidence has been taken and a report is now being prepared. An extension of time to report will give the committee the extra time needed to fully consider and finalise its report for tabling and printing.
