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

  That the Senate—


    (i)the call by the Kimberley Land Council (KLC) for an inquiry into the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC) after the group was denied funding for its ongoing activities,

    (ii)that council chairman, Mr Ivan McGee, said that KLC had not enough support in 1994 because of the `inept administration of ATSIC', and

    (iii)that the council has called for an urgent independent inquiry because of the need to provide greater control by `Aboriginal people at the regional level'; and

  (b)supports Senator Panizza's call for such an inquiry, as encompassed in notice of motion no. 428 given on 18 November 1993.
