Senator PROWSE (Western Australia) - I move:

That the Senate take note of the report.

In doing so, I wish to speak very briefly on the matter. I have no intention of attempting to convey to the Senate any of the matter contained in the report. The report is available now for all to read. However, I do wish to take this opportunity to place on record the appreciation of the Committee of the most able and willing cooperation of various departmental officers whose assistance has been made available to us by their respective Ministers. We have been able to avail ourselves of specialist advice in the many matters involved, without which we could not have prepared a meaningful report in the time available to us. As Chairman of the Committee, I express my thanks to the staff, who have worked under considerable pressure for many days. Not least do I appreciate the co-operation and enthusiasm of the members of the Committee in engaging in this task, which has been subject to considerable publicity and great frustration by events occurring since the work has commenced.

Debate (on motion by Senator Wilkinson) adjourned.

Motion (by Senator Prowse) proposed:

That the resumption of the debate be made an order of the day for the next day of sitting.
