Senator CHANEY (Leader of the Opposition) —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That the Senate-

(a) notes the reported comments of the Premier of New South Wales, Mr Wran ( which reports have not been denied by him), relating to the evidence to the Senate Select Committee on Allegations Concerning a Judge of the Chairman of the Board of Stipendiary Magistrates of New South Wales, Mr Clarrie Briese, which in the view of the Senate are intimidatory of Mr Briese and pose a threat to the independence of the courts of New South Wales; and

(b) condemns the Premier for those comments.
