Senator REID —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That the Senate-

(a) notes the decision to hand over the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Schools Authority media services film and sound recording studio to Film Australia:

(i) without fully investigating other alternatives;

(ii) without consulting with Australian Capital Territory teachers who will be affected, and

(iii) without taking the needs of the Australian Capital Territory students into consideration; and

(b) calls upon the Council of the Authority to provide the Senate with the reasons for the decision and a financial statement detailing the cost of maintaining the studio and the cost to provide the same service by Film Australia.
