Senator NETTLE (New South Wales) (3.56 p.m.)—As amended, by leave—I move:

That the Senate calls on the Australian Government:

(a) to negotiate a unitisation deal concerning Greater Sunrise that considers for the purpose of negotiating the Timor Sea Treaty that at least 80 per cent of the Greater Sunrise gas field is deemed to lie within the Joint Petroleum Development Area (JPDA);

(b) if it will not negotiate in good faith about the proportion of Greater Sunrise deemed to lie within the JPDA, to ensure that negotiations regarding the Timor Sea Treaty proceed independently of the Greater Sunrise unitisation arrangement being finalised; and

(c) in order to facilitate ongoing negotiation in good faith, to recommit to the jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice with respect to the determination of maritime boundaries.

Question put.
