Senator MURPHY (New South WalesLeader of the Government in the Senate) - I give notice that on the next day of sitting I shall move:

That all annual reports of government departments and authorities, including statutory corporations, laid on the table of the Senate shall stand referred without any question being put for consideration and, if necessary, for report thereon to the Legislative and General Purpose Standing Committees. The President shall transmit a copy of each report so tabled to the Committee which he deems appropriate. The Legislative and General Purpose Standing Committees may at their discretion pursue or not pursue inquiries into reports so received, but any action necessary, arising from a report of a committee, shall be taken in the Senate on motion after notice.
