Dr PATTERSON - Yes, I will do that. If we had this information we could intelligently debate this and other projects. Such information in respect of all projects - beef roads, irrigation projects and power houses, whether coal fired or nuclear powered - should be made available.

I move:

That all words after 'That' be omitted with a view to inserting the following words in place thereof: the technical evaluation and any cost benefit analyses carried out by the Commonwealth for the project near Bundaberg be made available to this House'

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Luchetti - Order! Is the amendment seconded?
