Mr Hicks completed his speech on the motion—That this House:

(1) expresses its strong support for Australia[quot ]s teachers;

(2) notes its concern at the greater responsibilities and increasing stress being placed on teachers because of many social factors, including the disintegration of many of Australia[quot ]s families and resulting lack of discipline within the school environment; and

(3) recommends that more authority be given to teachers so that teachers and their students are not placed in danger and teachers can get on with the job of educating those students who wish to be taught—

Debate ensued.

The time allotted for the debate having expired, the debate was interrupted and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for the next sitting.
