  (1)That the following matter be referred to the Joint Committee on the Broadcasting of Parliamentary Proceedings for inquiry and report on or before 24 March 1994: reconsideration of—

    (a)the general principle which prohibits broadcasting of Senate proceedings after 11.30 p.m. but prior to the moving of the adjournment, with a view to recommending the adoption by each House of a change to this principle to permit such broadcasting; and

    (b)the standing determination of 25 March 1953 which prohibits broadcasting of the Senate when it sits on a Saturday, with a view to the committee making a new determination to permit such broadcasting.
