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

That this House-

(1) records its support for the Speaker in his action to rule out of order, on the grounds of frivolity and mockery, the notice of motion given by the member for O'Connor on 4 October 1983; and

(2) congratulates the Speaker on his prompt action to maintain the dignity of the Parliament and protect it from further attempts at using humour to accent a serious message.

Mr SPEAKER —Not being without a sense of humour, I note that it might be appropriate if that notice of motion was debated forthwith!
