Senator MURPHY (New South WalesLeader of the Opposition) - This matter was referred to on an earlier occasion when it was suggested that an opportunity should be given to debate the report. I propose to move that we take note of the report so that we may debate it at some later stage. It is not my suggestion that we should debate it now. I move:

That the Senate take note of the report.

I do not wish to engage in any debate on the matter now, but 4 members ofthe Parliament are on that Council, 2 of them being from the Senate. There are some important matters that I would like to have discussed and this report may provide an appropriate vehicle for this.

Senator Wright - Ask for leave to continue your remarks and leave will readily be given.

Senator MURPHY - I thank the Minister. That is exactly what I proposed to do, if the Minister will contain himself. I hope that on some future occasion we will have an opportunity to discuss the contents of the report and to raise some extremely important matters which have been discussed by the Council of the Australian National University with a view to their being raised here. I ask for leave to continue my remarks.

Leave granted; debate adjourned.
