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

That this House-

(1) condemns the heavy-handed and costly action taken by Telecom Australia which resulted in the gaoling of homeless youths in Melbourne on the weekend of 8-9 October 1983, and

(2) calls on the Minister for Communications to intervene to arrange negotiations between Telecom Australia and the Victorian Minister of Housing with a view to the Ministry of Housing buying the property Bona Vista which was vacant for seven years at a time of acute public housing shortage.
