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

That this House-

(1)   notes with pleasure the return of the right honourable member for New England as Leader of the House;

(2)   deplores the vindictive and unjustified attempt to destroy the high public standing of the right honourable member for New England by means of an inquiry conducted by a lawyer active at the highest levels of the New South Wales Labor Party, Mr Michael Finnane;

(3)   condemns the misuse in this matter of the office of Attorney-General of New South Wales for party political purposes by its present Labor Party incumbent, Mr Frank Walker; and

(4)   censures the Opposition in this Parliament for its misuse of the Parliament to denigrate a member whilst an inquiry was being conducted elsewhere and for its collusion with the New South Wales Attorney-General in forcing a debate on the Finnane report when this report was not available to members of this House nor to the right honourable member for New England.
