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

  That the Senate—

    (a)condemns the Government for its 1993-94 Budget measures which have slugged lower income earners and the unemployed with increased indirect taxes and charges without any compensation whatsoever; and

    (b)notes that:

      (i)these imposts will particularly hurt Australians of overseas origin, and

      (ii)migrants, suffering in many instances from much higher than the already massive levels of unemployment facing the wider community, will face increased difficulties in finding employment.
