Mr BARNARD (Bass) - I appreciate the fact that the Leader of the House (Mr Snedden) has recognised that there has been some misunderstanding. I want to make it perfectly clear that I did not understand that the Grievance Day debate would be withdrawn this morning. If that was the intention of the Minister it was not conveyed to mc. I fully understood that the debate would take place this morning. There has apparently been some misunderstanding. I do not deny that the Minister may have thought that this information had been conveyed to me. I assure him that I and honourable members on this side of the House had a clear understanding that there would be a Grievance Day debate. For that reason we drew up a list of speakers and those speakers have prepared their speeches. In all fairness to those honourable members I think the Minister should withdraw his motion.

Mr Snedden - I ask for leave to withdraw my motion.

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

Mr Snedden - I withdraw my motion. 1 indicated that I am prepared to allow the debate to run for an hour.

Mr SPEAKER -The question now is:

That grievances be noted.
