Mr HURFORD (Adelaide) - I move: That the debate be now adjourned.

Mr SPEAKER -I apologise for intervening in this way, but I indicate to the honourable member for Adelaide that, as I understand it, it would be desirable for the Prime Minister's motion to be passed and for debate to occur subsequently on the motion to be moved on Thursday. That is an indication only. I am in the hands of the House.

Mr HURFORD - With your indulgence, Mr Speaker, I might explain that, as I have been briefed on this matter, the procedures I expected were not followed. Leave was to be granted to move this motion, there were not to be any speeches on it, the matter was to go forward, and this House would have the opportunity very shortly to debate the whole issue of the new Parliament House. If the Leader of the House (Mr Sinclair) can give me the assurance that there will be that opportunity very shortly, to debate these matters, then I am prepared to withdraw my motion and let the other motion go ahead.
