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

That the Senate-

(a) is concerned about the recent action taken by the Australian Capital Territory Apprenticeship Board in applying a strict interpretation of the relevant catering award for apprentice cooks;

(b) abhors the fact that this now means that the intake of apprentice cooks in the Australian Capital Territory will be restricted to a maximum of 15 apprentices every three years; and

(c) insists that the Government intervene to prevent further erosion of the rapidly diminishing sources of employment for Canberra's youth.
