Mr CHARLES JONES —by leave-I join very briefly in what the honourable member for Hughes (Mr Les Johnson) has said. I think this matter should have been dealt with through the Joint House Committee. May I say that I appreciate the service that is rendered in the members' dining room. I think the ladies who wait at the tables go out of their way to try to make the life of a member here that little bit more tolerable. They have to put up with everyone for three days a week. I think the staff do an excellent job. On the improvement in the meals over the last 12 months or so, I think someone in the establishment has really gone out of his or her way to try to make dining more attractive and to meet the requirements of members. Of course there are some members who would never be satisfied with whatever they got. But I think the dining room is run on a much better level now than it was in previous years. I repeat, the service of the staff is excellent. People who come here for breakfast would not get better service or food anywhere.
