Mr SPEAKER —I have received a letter from the honorable member for Perth proposing that a definite matter of public importance be submitted to the House for discussion, namely:

The threat to communications services to rural and regional Australia arising from the government's pursuit of the full privatisation of Telstra.

I call upon those members who approve of the proposed discussion to rise in their places.

More than the number of members required by the standing orders having risen in their places—

Mr SPEAKER —I warn the member for Prospect.

Mrs Crosio —I am really sorry.

Mr SPEAKER —I thank the member for Prospect.
