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

That the Senate—

(a)   commends the Dalai Lama and his representatives for consistently rejecting the use of violence, and notes that this was acknowledged in the awarding of the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize to the Dalai Lama; and

(b)   endorses the representations made by successive Australian governments and by members of this Parliament to the People's Republic of China on alleged human rights abuses, both generally and specifically in Tibet.
