Senator COTTON (New South Wales) -Briefly, the document is entitled 'Principles of Rural Policy in Australia '. It was drawn up under very broad terms of reference to be a discussion paper for a basis of informed judgment and thought. The work has been done by a very good group of people. I think that it is an extremely valuable document. It reaches no recommendations but it does give a series of broad conclusions and comments. There is an underlying thread throughout the paper in all its chapters and seems to give a reasonably consistent position. I believe that the document is of such far reaching importance that it needs to be discussed in this chamber both more broadly and in some considerable depth. I hope that the opportunity for that will occur later on in this session. With those remarks I move:

That the debate be now adjourned.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Motion (by Senator Douglas McClelland) agreed to:

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

Suggest corrections
