Senator NETTLE (New South Wales) (3.43 p.m.)—I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes the Medact report, Collateral Damage: the health and environmental costs of war on Iraq, launched internationally on Tuesday, 12 November 2002 by the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War; and

(b) calls on the Government to adopt conclusions contained within the report, including:

(i) the urgent need for humane and wise global leadership which recognises that national security is impossible without international security and that this can be achieved only the measures outlined in the report, and

(ii) pursuing peaceful means of resolving conflicts with Iraq and thinking carefully about the effects of waging war that might damage our fragile planet and its people for decades to come.

Question put.
