Mr VINER (Stirling) (Leader of the House) - in reply- I can assure my good friend and colleague, the honourable member for Holt (Mr Yates), and my old friend and doughty opponent, the honourable member for Wills (Mr Bryant), that any approaches made to me during the winter recess of the magnitude indicated by the honourable member for Holt will, of course, be given the most serious consideration. I add that, not unnaturally, if I were to receive any such request from honourable members I would consult with the Prime Minister (Mr Malcolm Fraser) for his advice as to whether it was of such moment as to warrant the recall of the Parliament before the allotted date, which is August 19, when the Government will present its Budget for the 1980-81 financial year.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
