Mr PUNCH —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House-

(1) Condemns the New South Wales Liberal Party decision that every Australian resident reaching 16 years of age, or on leaving school, be issued with an identity card bearing a photograph and number, and

(2) Notes that in so doing a major State branch of the Federal Liberal Party has adopted a policy which is-

(a) a matter of grave afront to human dignity and one which seriously threatens the principles of civil liberties and liberalism of the individual; and

(b) identical to practices of totalitarian regimes of the extreme right and left.
