I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes that members of the Leonora community at a recent public meeting expressed distress and concern that Leonora is being targeted as the site for a national radioactive waste management facility under the so called 'Plan B';

(b) expresses its deep concern regarding the repeated attempts to impose an intermediate level waste dump on the lands of First Nations peoples; and

(c) calls for an independent inquiry to investigate the full range of options to manage Australia's intermediate level radioactive waste.
