Mr WELLS —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House-

(1) notes-

(a) that in every Parliament of Australia certain advantages are attendant upon holding the position of Minister of the Crown;

(b) that these privileges include the power of the purse, access to media, unlimited travel, and staff; and

(c) that in Queensland these powers are now exercised by a one-party minority Government, the number of whose Ministers has recently been increased; and

(2) condemns this appropriation of Queensland taxpayers' resources by the Government.
