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

That this House-

(1) notes the gravity of the situation in the Lebanon and the potential for further internationalisation of the conflict;

(2) expresses deep concern at the terrible devastation of Lebanon and the suffering of the innocent civilians of Lebanon;

(3) urges all parties to avoid further acts of escalation and to facilitate as a matter of supreme urgency efforts for humanitarian relief of the injured and distressed; and

(4) urges a cessation of conflict and the phased withdrawal of foreign forces.
