Senator MURPHY (New South WalesLeader of the Opposition) - I would like to move a motion in accordance with what I understand to be the sense of what both Senator Sir Kenneth Anderson and Senator Gair have put. It is: 'That the Senate notes the interim report of the Committee but directs the Committee to report to the Senate in more detail within the 28 days specified in its reference'. In other words, the proposition would be that the Committee would report within the 28 days specified, and we would not be accepting the further proposition that no further investigations be undertaken.

Senator Sir KENNETHANDERSON (New South Wales - Minister for Health) (8.20) - I will be happy to withdraw my motion.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT - Is leave granted for Senator Sir Kenneth Anderson to withdraw his motion? There being no objection, leave is granted.


I support Senator Murphy's proposed motion. The Committee will report to the Senate in more detail within 28 days in accordance with its terms of reference. It is not inhibited as to the evidence it will take and the judgments it will form before reporting to the Senate.

Motion - by leave - withdrawn.
