Mr SWARTZ (Darling Downs) (Minister for National Development) - Mr Deputy Speaker, the debate on this matter, in a variety of forms, has continued for quite some time despite the fact thai it was a ministerial statement to which there was a response by the honourable member for Dawson. The matter has arisen because 2 members of the Opposition asked specifically for a vote on this mailer l before the Chair.

Mr Grassby - Mr Deputy Spv.aM.-t, a point of order.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! The honourable member for Riverina will resume his seat. The honourable member for Eden-Monaro will also resume his seat.

Dr Patterson - Mr Deputy Speaker, I raise a point of order. The honourable member for Eden-Monaro asked for the suspension of Standing Orders to allow the House to debate the matter.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! There is no substance in the point of order.

Mr SWARTZ - In order that this matter may be resolved, as it is quite obvious that the Opposition wishes to vote on the subject, I suggest that the vote be taken on the original motion.
