Mr HURFORD ( Adelaide) -I give notice that on general business Thursday No. 7, I shall move:

That a joint committee be appointed to inquire into and report upon the Australian Insurance Industry, with particular reference to-

1.   The establishment of public enterprise insurance facilities to compete with private insurance facilities in those Slates and Territories where such a choice does not now exist and to co-operate with the various State Government insurance organisations to achieve inter alia economies of scale and improved re-insurance facilities;

2.   The provision of house insurance cover at premiums comparable with those being offered by the Commonwealth Banking Corporation and the Defence Service Homes loans schemes;

3.   The provision of adequate national disaster insurance: and

4.   The need for comprehensive legislation on the supervision, regulation and control of the insurance industry in the light of recommendations of the Australian Law Reform Commission.
