I move:

That the Senate—

(a) condemns the Abbott Government for actively considering modifying the boundaries of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area to exclude high conservation value forests; and

(b) calls on the Abbott Government to rule out submitting a proposal to modify the boundaries to the area to the World Heritage Committee by February 2014 for the June meeting of the committee.

Question agreed to.
