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

  That the Senate—

    (a)notes the remarks made by the Prime Minister (Mr Keating) on 26 September 1993 that he intends to `stare down' the Senate;

    (b)condemns the Treasurer (Mr Dawkins) and Prime Minister's abysmal handling of the 1993-94 Budget, which has now undergone four sets of changes after humiliating capitulations in the face of justifiable hostility towards the Budget;

    (c)calls on the Government to heed calls to rewrite the Budget, with particular emphasis on withdrawing its unfair, regressive and harsh indirect tax rises; and

    (d)takes up the Prime Minister's challenge to out stare him.
