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

That this House-

(1) supports the call, made by 250 students, from Mt St Joseph's, Milperra, in their petition which I will present to the House, for the abolition of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction;

(2) congratulates the girls and their teachers for their active consideration of this important matter;

(3) calls on the Government to encourage the United States of America and the Soviet Union to halt the testing, production and further deployment of all nuclear weapons, missiles and delivery systems, in a way that can be checked and verified by both sides; and

(4) calls on the Government to oppose any extension of the countries that deploy nuclear weapons.
