Mr Hodgman to move-

That, for the first time since Federation, this Honourable House believes it to be its duty to request and advise Her Majesty, Elizabeth the Second, Queen of Australia, to exercise her powers pursuant to section 59 of the constitution by disallowing the Lemonthyme and Southern Forests (Commission of Inquiry) Act 1987, and respectfully advises Her Majesty that-

(1) the Lemonthyme and Southern Forests (Commission of Inquiry) Act 1987 is clearly unconstitutional;

(2) more than any legislation Australia has ever previously seen, the Act encroaches upon and extinguishes the right of use of private property in a very substantial part of the State of Tasmania;

(3) section 17 of the Act radically and unjustly changes the law in relation to the granting of injunctions;

(4) the Act severely limits the scope of payment of compensation and in so doing, contravenes the Constitution;

(5) the Act denies any compensation whatsoever to those who suffer loss or damage (including loss of employment) in a secondary or tertiary capacity, and

(6) under section 14 (c) of the Act, forcible entry to any private property in any part of Tasmania is authorised where any ``member (of the Commission) or other person'' considers forestry resources may be contained.
