I move:

That the Senate:

welcomes the adoption in December 2006 by the United Nations of the Convention on the Rights and Dignity of Persons with Disabilities; and
asks the Government to show leadership at home and to the international community by being one of the first countries to be a signatory to the Convention when this is possible after 30 March 2007.

Question agreed to.
