Mr SPEAKER - I have received a letter from the honourable member for Grayndler (Mr Daly) proposing that a definite matter of public importance be submitted to the House for discussion, namely:

The failure of the Government to provide adequate increases in the rates of aged, invalid and widows pensions and other social service benefits to meet the increased cost of living, thereby causing hardship and suffering and reducing living standards.

I call upon those members who approve of the proposed discussion to rise in their places. (More than the number of members required by the Standing Orders having risen in their places)
