I move:

That the Senate—
(a)   notes:
(i)   that Mr David Hicks remains in Guantanamo Bay despite all British prisoners having been released by request of their government, and
(ii)   the failure of the Howard Government to request that Mr Hicks be released; and
(b)   calls on the Government to place a request with the Government of the United States of America for Mr Hicks to be released.

Question negatived.
