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

That the Senate—

(a)   notes:

   (i)   that the Victorian Government plans to allow private development in the Wilsons Promontory National Park,

   (ii)   the development is planned to include a 150 bed lodge at Tidal River, which would irrevocably alter the quality of the environment and the experience all visitors go there to have, and

   (iii)   this type of development is utterly inappropriate for Wilsons Promontory; and

(b)   calls on the Victorian Government to halt plans for private development in any of its national parks.
