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

That this House-

(1) notes with grave concern the decisions of the Government-

(a) to approve the establishment of an Arab League Information Office in Australia, and

(b) to permit contacts between Australian Ambassadors and the Palestine Liberation Organisation, and

(2) condemns the Government for-

(a) its exposure of Australian companies and individuals to the Arab boycott;

(b) its increasing of the risks of further terrorist acts against Australian citizens;

(c) its moving towards the recognition of the P.L.O. without any concession from the P.L.O. towards Israel, and

(d) its discouraging those who seek peace in the Middle East and encouraging those who oppose peace.
