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

That this House congratulates the Premier of Queensland for bringing to the attention of the people of that State and the nation that-

(1) the Australian Labor Party wants to remove the words 'God' and 'Queen' from the national Oath of Allegiance;

(2) the Australian Labor Party would ignore the most important part of living, namely the ethical and christian part;

(3) half of the Australian Labor Party would not take an oath on the Bible, and

(4) the Australian Labor Party and the Prime Minister want to make Australia a Republic.
