Senator HILL (Leader of the Opposition) —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

  That the Senate—

    (a)congratulates Sydney on its successful bid for the year 2000 Summer Olympics and in particular, congratulates Mr Rod McGeoch and his Olympic bid team for their outstanding effort in securing the right to host the Games on behalf of all Australians; and

    (b)notes:

          (i)the enormous benefits of this decision for Australia, in sporting and economic terms, and in reminding Australians of their ability to take on the world and win, and

          (ii)that a key ingredient of the Sydney bid was the support offered by the people of Australia, and that it will be this unity and not division which will see Australia stand proud in the international community as the host of the year 2000 Olympic Games.
