Mr HODGMAN —Mr Speaker, I ask you to look at the matter raised in my notice of motion as a matter of privilege. In particular, I draw your attention to the following statement made on national radio today by the President of the Australia Council of Trade Unions, Mr Dolan:

The Prime Minister 'put pressure on all sorts of people in relation to the Caucus vote yesterday'.

Mr Speaker, I formally ask you to consider as a matter of privilege that members of this Parliament have been wrongfully intimidated in the course of their duties.

Mr Scholes —Mr Speaker, I raise a point of order. It is required of a member who raises a matter of privilege that he present to you, as Speaker, and to the House all documentation at the time of raising the matter. The honourable member has failed to do this.

Mr SPEAKER —I accept the matter raised and will consider it further.
