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

  That the Senate—

  (a)notes that communication towers have been erected on designated land in the Australian Capital Territory contrary to Commonwealth legislation; and

  (b)asks what steps the Government will take to have towers already erected in breach of the National Capital Plan removed, in particular that erected on Oakey Hill in contravention of the `clear hills' policy of the National Capital Plan.

  (c)calls on the Government to further strengthen provisions in the Telecommunications National Code to allow for adequate community consultation on the construction of further towers, including widespread notification by carriers of their intention, and sufficient time to negotiate.
