Mr YATES (Holt) - I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House, taking into account the strategic changes in the balance of power in the near and far east due to the Soviet military occupation of Afghanistan and its military support of forces in Kampuchea, now commends and supports the decision of the Treasurer to increase the Budget appropriation for defence to $3,45 1 m and therefore invites the Minister for Defence to explain how this appropriation will be used in support of the ANZUS Treaty and the defence of Australia.
