Mr CADMAN —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House-

(1) requests the Prime Minister to seek the approval of the Premiers Conference to have the Advisory Council for Inter-government Relations report on the following reference:

That the Advisory Council for Inter-government Relations-

(1) investigate those authorities or bodies which are publicly financed and which are of joint Commonwealth, State or Local Government responsibility;

(2) advise the Commonwealth and States on the most satisfactory processes of auditability for these bodies through Auditors-General and Public Accounts Committees; and

(3) present its Report to the Premiers by June 1984.

(2) notes that there are large areas of public expenditure which are not auditable through Auditors-General and accountable to the Parliaments; and

(3) urges immediate attention to the problem.
