Mr JOHN BROWN (Minister for Sport, Recreation and Tourism and Minister for Administrative Services) —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House-

(1) congratulates Robert de Castella for his magnificent win in the marathon at the Helsinki World Athletics Championship and

(2) notes that Mr de Castella, a product of the Australian Institute of Sport, is now recognised as the greatest marathon runner the world has ever produced, and

(3) notes with gratitude the sterling service that Mr Don Talbot the retiring Director of the Australian Institute of Sport has given to that organisation since its inception.
