NOTICES: Notice of Motion withdrawn

The Chairman of the Standing Committee on Regulations and Ordinances (Senator Coates), by leave, withdrew Business of the Senate, Notice of Motion No. 3 standing in his name, for the disallowance of certain words in the Australian Capital Territory Supervision of Offenders (Community Service Orders) Ordinance 1985.

Senator Coates, by leave, made a statement relating thereto.

Notices of Motion: Notices of Motion were given, as follows- Senator Archer, on behalf of the Standing Committee on Industry and Trade: To move on the next day of sitting- (1) That, if the Senate be not sitting when the Standing Committee on Industry and Trade has completed its Reports on the Re-examination of the Closer Economic Relationship between Australia and New Zealand, the Committee may send the Reports to the President, or, if the President is unable to act, to the Deputy-President, and, in that event- (a) the Reports shall be deemed to have been presented to the Senate;

(b) the publication of the Reports is authorised by this Resolution;

(c) the President or the Deputy-President, as the case may be, may give directions for the printing and circulation of the Reports; and

(d) the President or the Deputy-President, as the case may be, shall lay the Reports upon the Table at the next sitting of the Senate.

(2) That the foregoing provisions of this Resolution, insofar as they are inconsistent with the Standing Orders, have effect notwithstanding anything contained in the Standing Orders.

Senator Lewis: To move on the next day of sitting-That the Senate- (a) deplores the failure of the Government to provide efficient postal services in the Australian Capital Territory; and

(b) urges the Government to sell the former Canberra City Post Office, valued at about $2.5m, and utilise these funds towards the development of adequate mail exchange facilities and amenities for mail sorters.

Senator Townley: To move on the next day of sitting-That the Senate- (a) aware that uranium is a relatively common metal and widely distributed around the world;

(b) well aware that Australia is not the only source of uranium and a policy of non-supply to the world market will not stop nuclear power stations being constructed or operating; and

(c) convinced that more and more countries will move into the nuclear field over the coming decade because of environmental and other reasons, is of the opinion that a policy of restricting development of uranium mines within Australia is a policy out of touch with reality, and one which can only damage the economy of Australia.
