Mr ALBANESE (12:55 PM) —I move:

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the Member for Grayndler from moving the following motion forthwith: That the Government

(1)   immediately table all documents iFn its possession related to excavation work at Anzac Cove, including any archaeological reports done since 2002, all heritage assessments of Anzac Cove done since 2002, and all correspondence with the Turkish Government since 2002 relating to the current road works and associated constructions at Anzac Cove;

(2)   outline in detail what measures the Government has taken to monitor the current road works and associated constructions at Anzac Cove;

(3)   provide details of any plans for road widening elsewhere on Gallipoli peninsula, such as the road running between the Australian Memorial at Lone Pine and the New Zealand Memorial at Chunuk Bair; and

(4)   immediately table all Australian Heritage Commission, Australian Heritage Council and Department of Veterans Affairs documents relating to the proposed listing of Anzac Cove on the National Heritage List or the proposed World Heritage Listing of any sites on the Gallipoli Peninsula.

Anzac Cove is a sacred site. It is much more than a heritage site and it has been left vulnerable by the complacency of the Howard government.

Dr Stone —Mr Deputy Speaker, I move:

That the member be not further heard.

Question put.
