Senator Panizza, at the request of Senator Reid and pursuant to notice

of motion not objected to as a formal motion, moved--

(1) That the following matter be referred to the Joint Committee on

the Broadcasting of Parliamentary Proceedings for inquiry and

report on or before 24 March 1994:

Reconsideration of--

(a) the general principle which prohibits broadcasting of

Senate proceedings after 11.30 p.m. but prior to the

moving of the adjournment, with a view to recommending

the adoption by each House of a change to this

principle to permit such broadcasting; and

(b) the standing determination of 25 March 1953 which

prohibits broadcasting of the Senate when it sits on a

Saturday, with a view to the committee making a new

determination to permit such broadcasting.

(2) That the terms of this resolution be transmitted to the House of

Representatives for its concurrence.

Question put and passed.
