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

The failure of the Howard Government to uphold basic standards of honesty and decency

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 ABBOTT (Warringah—Leader of the House) (5.11 p.m.)—I move:

That the business of the day be called on.

Question agreed to.
