Senator NETTLE (4:41 PM) —by leave—The amendment that I wish to make is to take note of an announcement made today by the Australian Labor Party in the New South Wales state parliament so as to make the motion up to date. Other than that, I seek no further amendment to the motion.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT (Senator Watson)—Is leave granted to amend the motion?

Leave not granted.

Senator NETTLE —That being the case, I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes the demonstration of 4 000 people on the weekend of 21 and 22 September 2002 to protest against the development of the proposed charcoal plant in Mogo, near Batemans Bay, New South Wales; and

(b) expresses its objection to this polluting and unsustainable development, which is based on massive new logging operations that will adversely impact upon the local environment, and the local community's lifestyle and economic security.

Question put:

That the motion (Senator Nettle's) be agreed to.
