Notice given 25 June 2002

*99  Chair of the Finance and Public Administration Legislation Committee (Senator Mason): To move—That the time for the presentation of reports of the Finance and Public Administration Legislation Committee be extended as follows:

(a) Charter of Political Honesty Bill 2000 [2002] and 3 related bills—to 29 August 2002; and

(b) Public Interest Disclosure Bill 2001 [2002]—to 26 September 2002.

*100  Senator Sherry: To move—That there be laid on the table, on the last sitting day of the 2002 winter sittings, the modelling, including information on projected spending for payments to individuals, education, health and aged care spending, prepared for the draft Intergenerational Report in early 2002 before budget changes were factored in, prepared by the Retirement and Income Modelling Unit, Treasury and identified in Treasury’s evidence before the Economics Legislation Committee on 6 June 2002.

*101  Senator Ridgeway: To move—That the Senate—

(a) notes that:

(i) Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples have only been counted in the national census for the past 30 years (since 1971), even though Australia has been a federation for 100 years,

(ii) the results of the 2001 Census of Population and Housing shows the Indigenous population of Australia has increased 16.2 per cent since 1996 and now stands at 410 003 people,

(iii) Indigenous people now represent 2.2 per cent of the national population and the Indigenous population is growing at a rate more than twice that of the general population (which stands at 6 per cent),

(iv) 58 per cent of the Australian Indigenous population is under 25 years of age, which is in stark contrast to the non-Indigenous population where only about one-third (35 per cent) is aged under 25 years, and

(v) 40 per cent of the juvenile detention centre population is Indigenous and 20 per cent of the national adult prison population is Indigenous; and

(b) expresses its concern at the disparity in rates of attendance at secondary school between Indigenous children (46 per cent) and non-Indigenous children (70 per cent), which is contributing to the relatively low percentage of Indigenous Australians who complete Year 12 (10 per cent) compared with the rate for Year 12 completion in the total population (30 per cent), and notes that both rates are of concern; and

(c) calls on the Government to:

(i) recognise the longer term implications of these figures, especially as they relate to the provision of educational opportunities and the need to foster the emerging young Indigenous leadership, and

(ii) use these figures, in conjunction with the recommendations of the Commonwealth Grants Commission Report into Indigenous Funding, when planning for the development and delivery of Indigenous programs and services.

*102  Chair of the Environment, Communications, Information Technology and the Arts References Committee (Senator Allison): To move—That the time for the presentation of the report of the Environment, Communications, Information Technology and the Arts References Committee on urban water management be extended to 29 August 2002.

*103  Senator Brown: To move—That there be laid on the table, no later than the end of question time on Wednesday, 25 June 2002, the study commissioned by the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation, on behalf of the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency, of the preliminary evaluation of the construction site for the replacement research reactor at Lucas Heights, carried out by the New Zealand company, the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences, which included geological mapping of the excavation of the construction site and has revealed a geological anomaly or ‘fault’ at the site.
