Notices of Motion were given, as follows-- Senator Ryan: That, on the next day of sitting, she would move--That leave be given to introduce a Bill for an Act providing for the granting of Self-Management and Traditional Land in Queensland for the benefit of Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders and for other purposes.

Senator McLaren: That, on the next day of sitting, he would move--That the Senate--

(1) expresses its grave concern that Notice of Motion No. 33 standing in the name of Senator McLaren has now become a stark and tragic reality for the State of South Australia, with the Tonkin Liberal Government's announcement that it has raided the State's Loan Funds to the extent of $37.2 million, which is unprecedented and has created an all-time high;

(2) notes that this recent raid on the State's Loan Funds will cause a critical down turn in the State's Public Works programme, which will have the effect of further increasing the number of unemployed persons in South Australia, which also has the record for the highest number of unemployed of any State; and (3) agrees with the Leader of the Opposition in South Australia, Mr John Bannon, when he says that the Tonkin Liberal Government inherited a Treasury from the Labor Government with a $600,000 surplus plus large financial reserves and that all of this has now been lost to the State and its people due to continued economic mismanagement since September 1979.

Senator Haines: That, on the next day of sitting, she would move--That the Senate requests the House of Representatives to continue funding the Community Youth Support Scheme programmes at least until May 1982, while a comprehensive public evaluation is undertaken, particularly in view of the Government's promise to make changes which would make the service ""run smoothly and consistently''.

Senator Harradine: That (contingent on the President proceeding to the placing of business on any day) he would move--That so much of the Standing Orders be suspended as would prevent Senator Harradine moving a motion relating to the order of business on the Notice Paper.
