Senator BARTLETT (Leader of the Australian Democrats) (3:10 PM) —Mr Deputy President, I withdraw general business notice of motion No. 80, proposing an order for the production by the Minister representing the Minister for the Environment and Heritage of certain applications and related documents made in accordance with regulation 18 of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Regulations 1983.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT —That notice is withdrawn.

Senator BARTLETT —Similarly, I also wish to withdraw business of the Senate notice of motion No. 1 standing in my name for 22 October 2002. I would like to note the reason for the withdrawal of general business notice of motion No. 80, which related to a return to order to do with permits for the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. The withdrawal is due to the cooperation of the government and the marine park authority in providing those details on the Internet—a significant advance that deserves to be noted.
