INDIGENOUS GOVERNANCE AWARDS

I move:

That the Senate—
(a)
congratulates:
(i)
the Cairns-based WuChopperen Health Services for winning the 2006 Indigenous Governance Award for an organisation established longer than 10 years, and
(ii)
the Wagga Wagga-based Gannambarra Enterprises for winning the 2006 Indigenous Governance Award for an organisation established fewer than 10 years; and
(b)
acknowledges the work of Reconciliation Australia and BHP Billiton in hosting the Indigenous Governance Awards and recognises the achievements of all the eight finalists in the awards and pays tribute to the positive contribution they are making for Indigenous Australians and the wider community.
Question agreed to.
