Mr DALY (Grayndler) - I ask the Minister for Labour and National Service (Mr Snedden) to recommit this motion. There is no indication on the blue sheet giving the daily programme that Order of the Day No. 1 was not to proceed. Although that document is not taken to give the exact programme for the day there was no indication, as far as I am aware, to the Deputy Leader of the Opposition (Mr Barnard), who represents the Opposition in these matters, that the Grievance debate would not be proceeded with. I suggest that the Minister should recommit this proposal because to abolish Grievance Day is something that the Opposition will object to, and the Opposition would have objected if it had known that this was the intention of the Minister. The Opposition opposes this motion and I ask the Minister to recommit it.

Mr SPEAKER -Order! In view of the circumstances I will withdraw the motion and my ruling. I suggest that the honourable member for Grayndler should be treated as having spoken to the motion which is now before the House.

Mr Snedden - If I may have the indulgence of the House, although I do not wish to close the debate-

Mr SPEAKER - If you speak now you will close the debate.

Mr Snedden - I ask the indulgence of the House so that I may answer the points raised by the honourable member for Grayndler.

Mr SPEAKER -Order! Is leave granted? There being no objection, leave is granted.
