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

  That the Senate—

  (a)deplores the lack of accountability of the Aboriginal Strelly Group pastoral leases in the Pilbara region of Western Australia; and

  (b)calls on the Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs (Mr Tickner) to instruct the Auditor-General to inquire into and report on the alleged financial mismanagement of the Strelly Group, especially in relation to funding of $1.7 million of taxpayers' money paid to the group in the past 2 years while the stations have been abandoned.
