Mr CADMAN —My notice of motion complements that given by the Leader of the Opposition. I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House-

(1) deplores the violence and turmoil in Lebanon as being the most significant factor preventing peace in the Middle East;

(2) urges that all powers exerting influence in Lebanon to

(a) face up to the turmoil, loss of life and lack of human rights they are creating in Lebanon, and

(b) recognise the ambitions of Syria and the Palestine Liberation Organisation as being the only reason preventing the withdrawal of foreign forces, and

(3) urges the Government to continue to follow the

(a) excellent record of the previous Government by supporting the people of Lebanon in their goal of peaceful existence, free from external interference, and

(b) leave nothing undone that should be done to aid and assist Lebanon.
