Senator CHANEY (Western AustraliaMinister for Aboriginal Affairs) - I wish to move an amendment to the motion. I would like to delete one member of the Committee and replace him with Senator Tate or with any honourable senator who voted for the motion. I will explain my reason for doing that. I think there is a grab bag of reasons why some honourable senators voted for the motion. I would prefer to see a report sent to the House of Representatives which reflected the range and variety of reasons put forward rather than the views of a particular group. I do not know whether any of the honourable senators nominated will volunteer not to be on the committee. I do not want to remove a particular honourable senator.

Senator Harradine - Who will volunteer?

Senator CHANEY - I will not pursue the amendment.
