Mr HODGMAN (Denison) - I give notice that on the next day of sitting I shall move:

That this House resolves to support to the utmost the actions taken by the Australian Government against the Soviet Union in response to the Soviet Union's brutal invasion of Afghanistan; further that this House places on record its deep regret at the weak, apathetic and vacillating response of the Australian Labor Party to the invasion by the Soviet Union of Afghanistan; and further that this House is of the view that through its actions the Soviet Union has demonstrated that Moscow is totally unfit to host the 1980 Olympic Games and that under no circumstances should any team representing Australia participate in any Olympic Games held anywhere within the Soviet Union.
