NOTICES

Notices of motion:

The Chair of the Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport References

Committee (Senator Brownhill): To move on the next day of sitting--That

the time for the presentation of the report of the Rural and Regional

Affairs and Transport References Committee on the impact of assets tests

on farming families' access to social security payments and Austudy be

extended to 8 June 1995.

Senator Abetz: To move on the next day of sitting--That the Senate--

(a) notes:

(i) the public falling out between Australia's arrogant and

complacent Prime Minister (Mr Keating) and his former

minister, "numbers man' and "mate', Mr Richardson, and

(ii) the interesting advice given to the Prime Minister by

Mr Richardson in his Bulletin column in the week

beginning 26 March 1995, namely:

If Keating could get back to the agenda of ordinary

people, he could still turn it around. If he could

acknowledge that during the recession he took interest

rates too high and he has learnt enough from that, they

might believe him.

If he could overcome his personal obsession with Howard

and get back to governing, he might still have enough

time. If he could consult his Cabinet colleagues a bit

more, let alone the Caucus, he could get plenty of advice;

and

(b) calls on the Prime Minister to heed Mr Richardson's wise words.

The Minister for Small Business, Customs and Construction (Senator

Schacht): To move on the next day of sitting--That the order of the

Senate of 29 November 1994, relating to the consideration of

legislation, not apply to the Taxation Laws Amendment (Drought Relief

Measures) Bill 1995.

Senator Watson: To move on the next day of sitting--That the Senate

deplores the Government's action in abandoning its legislative program

for blatant political motives.

Senator Baume: To move on the next day of sitting--That the Senate notes

that, on 9 March 1995, while the Prime Minister (Mr Keating) was in

Berlin telling the Germans how to run their economy, reorganise their

cities and redesign their architecture, the selling rate for the German

deutschmark against the Australian dollar fell below one for one for the

first time in history.

Notice of motion withdrawn: The Chair of the Finance and Public

Administration References Committee (Senator Bell) withdrew Business of

the Senate notice of motion no. 1 standing in his name for this day,

relating to the reference of a matter to the Finance and Public

Administration References Committee.
