Mr McGAURAN —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move-and this will be seconded by the honourable member for Kennedy (Mr Katter):

That this House-

(1) congratulates the honourable member for Tangney for unambiguously stating the Government's position on the Australian flag;

(2) repudiates the call by the honourable member to alter the flag; and

(3) is of the opinion that the wishes of the overwhelming majority of Australians should be affected by retaining the flag in it present form.

Mr ACTING SPEAKER —I remind honourable members that all notices of motion are subject to the scrutiny of the Chair before they appear on the Notice Paper. Several of them will be very carefully scrutinised after today's proceedings.
