The DEPUTY PRESIDENT —The President has received the following letter from Senator Chamarette:

The President of the Senate

Dear Mr President,

Pursuant to Standing Order 75, I give notice that today I propose to move:

"That, in the opinion of the Senate, the following is a matter of urgency:

The need for all Australian Governments to adhere to their international obligations on democratic electoral procedures and for the Tasmanian Government to respect the current process for election for the House of Assembly and, in line with accepted democratic principles, to stop the precipitate action of changing the electoral system without consulting the electors of Tasmania"

Yours Sincerely

Christabel Chamarette

Is the proposal supported? Order! There being inadequate numbers to support the motion, it lapses.
