Senator SANDERS —On behalf of Senator Chipp, I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, Senator Chipp will move:

That the Senate-

(a) calls upon the Government to:

(i) actively seek the successful conclusion of a Final Declaration at the Review Conference Nuclear Non-Proliferation Review beginning at the end of August,

(ii) promote the recessing of the Review Conference, and support in every way possible the issuing of an interim report calling upon the nuclear weapon states to take specific disarmament measures, prior to a reconvening of the Conference in 1986,

(iii) initiate and support moves for an Amendment Conference to be called to consider amendments to Articles IV and VI in line with the above,

(iv) support the proposal to establish the Energy for Development Fund to research and promote alternative energy sources, especially related to the needs of Third World Nations,

(v) to propose and support any move at the Review to amend Article IV of the Treaty to end its commitment to the promotion of the use of nuclear energy for civilian uses, and

(vi) promote and support any moves to separate the promotion and safeguarding functions of the International Atomic Energy Agency; and

(b) condemns the Government for its failure to inform and consult with the community on the importance of the Review and the position that the Government will be taking.
