Mr BRAITHWAITE(11.32 p.m.) —-I do not want to take up the time of the Committee, but I think it is appropriate at this time to note that, had it been a normal circumstance, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Social Security (Mr Sciacca) would have been in the chamber tonight. I know that everybody would share his concern for people and for the problems in social security. At this time, it would be appropriate for me to say, as a fellow Queenslander, that we share the concern he now has and the problems he has, and we hope that everything goes well. We express the concern of this Committee and, in these circumstances, the prayers of this chamber.
