I move:

That the Senate—
notes that:
the Commonwealth Radioactive Waste Management Act 2005 and the Commonwealth Radioactive Waste Management Legislation Amendment Act 2006 facilitated the Howard Government’s plan to develop a Commonwealth radioactive waste dump in the Northern Territory, and,
prior to the federal election, the Australian Labor Party committed to repealing this legislation, if elected; and
calls on the Government to:
announce the schedule for the repeal of this legislation and notify all affected communities and stakeholder organisations, and
repeal all sites proposed or nominated under the legislation for the Commonwealth radioactive waste facility, including Muckaty, which was nominated by the Northern Land Council.

Question put.
