NOTICES OF MOTION - Homosexuals: Tasmania

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

  That the Senate—

  (a)notes the opinion poll conducted by the 7.30 Report of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (Tasmania) which showed:

    (i)a majority of Tasmanians favour retaining Tasmanian laws relating to certain criminal conduct, and

    (ii)an overwhelming two-thirds majority of Tasmanians oppose Federal Government intervention on the issue; and

  (b)calls on the Attorney-General (Mr Lavarch) to desist from his stated course of action of overriding Tasmanian law which was democratically enacted by the Tasmanian Parliament.
