Mr FREE —I give notice that, on General Business Thursday No. 2, I shall move:

That this House congratulates the Government on its major achievements in the field of sport, in particular-

(1) the generous financial support for Australia's world class athletes provided by the recently announced National Athlete Award Scheme grants;

(2) the great success of the recent Australia Games in which the Government was the major financial sponsor, and

(3) the announcement of government support for the Brisbane City Council's bid to stage the 1992 Olympic Games.


Mr SPEAKER —Order! Before calling for further notices, I remind members of the House of the advice on notices of motion that has been given to the House by my predecessor and me on previous occasions. Motions are intended to be propositions in concise form placed before the House for decision. I have a duty under the Standing Orders to examine all notices of motion to see that an excessive amount of argument or information is not given in those notices that presage debate on the question in the House. I ask honourable members once more to take notice of that advice in forming their notices of motion.
