Mr Sercombe, pursuant to notice, moved—That, in the light of the strong views of many Australians, and particularly those in provincial and rural areas, the House calls on the Government to:

(1) clearly indicate that it will not proceed with the further privatisation of Telstra; and

(2) remove the proceeds of further privatisation from its Forward Estimates.

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.
