Senator DEVITT (Tasmania) - 1 move:

That the City Area Leases Ordinance 1970 (No. 45 of 1970), and the Leases (Special Purposes) Ordinance 1970 (No. 46 of 1970), made under the Seat of Government (Administration) Act 1910- 1970, be disallowed.

I suggest that to facilitate a free discussion on land tenure in the Australian Capital Territory it would be appropriate for the substance of notice of motion No. 12 in my name under the heading of General Business to be debated concurrently with this motion. After the question of disallowance of the ordinances is determined, the question contained in notice of motion No. 12 could be put forthwith. The 2 matters are cognate and I suggest that it is appropriate for the 2 matters to be debated concurrently. The expeditious dispatch of the business of the Senate could be thus assisted. At the conclusion of the debate when a vote is taken on the question of the disallowance of the ordinances, a VOl( could also be taken on the subject matter of notice of motion No. 12. The whole question of the land tenure system in the Australian Capital Territory, including the administration, general conduct and handling of that system could thus be put to the vote.
