I, and also on behalf of Senator Xenophon, move:

That the Senate—

  (a)   notes that on 23 June 2011 the Community Affairs References Committee tabled its final report, Social and economic impact of rural wind farms containing seven recommendations, including recommendations calling for studies on the effects of wind farms on human health; and

  (b)   calls on the Government to:

     (i)   immediately act on the committee's recommendations in the report, and

     (ii)   support a moratorium on the construction of further wind turbines until the recommendations have been satisfactorily addressed.
