Dr HARRY EDWARDS —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, lest this crucial matter be lost from public view, I shall move:

That this House-

(1) recalls and deplores the cut in funding for science and technology in the 1984-85 Budget, and in particular the CSIRO and the Australian Research Grant Scheme, and

(2) condemns the Government for their putting at risk, despite attention of the Minister, Australia's internationally recognised effort in science which is a foundation stone of the long-term economic health of Australia.
