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

That the Senate—

   (i)   the story on page 1 of the Financial Review of 31 October 1996, which reveals the federal Department of the Environment, Sport and Territories has identified 18 possible new uranium mines, and

   (ii)   that departmental advice has been with the Minister for the Environment (Senator Hill) for a number of months; and

(b)   calls on the Minister to:

   (i)   start acting like a Minister for the Environment instead of a proponent for the uranium industry, and
