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

  That the Senate—

    (a)notes:

      (i)with concern, the statement by Mr Roger Rose of the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics that uncertainty about the process of mine approval could be a `potent disincentive' to exploration, and

      (ii)that, according to Mr Rose, many companies were being discouraged from mineral exploration because of land access caused by Mabo and environmental concerns; and

    (b)condemns the Government for its failure to recognise the folly of the rushed Mabo legislation and for causing uncertainty to our largest export income earning industry.
