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

That the Senate—

(a)   notes that a petition has been circulated in regard to Triple J radio which states the following: `. . . the petition of the undersigned shows that the potential funding cuts to Radio Triple J will drastically affect services and public broadcasts to the youth of Australia. Your petitioners therefore ask the Senate to retain the current level of funding for Triple J';

(b)   urges all young people to sign the petition;

(c)   notes the important relationship which Triple J has with young Australians and, in particular, the important role it plays in regional Australia; and

(d)   is aware of the part which Triple J plays in promoting new Australian music and the economic benefits which arise from this endeavour.
