Mr SPEAKER - I have received a letter from the honourable member for Flinders (Mr Lynch) proposing that a definite matter of public importance be submitted to the House for discussion, namely:

The Government's attempt to misuse the allocation of Government contracts in a manner which is open to serious forms of bribery and corruption is an unwarranted attempt to force its will on individual contractors; to circumvent established conciliation and arbitration procedures; to destroy the concept that contracts should only be awarded on the basis of quality, performance and price and is contrary to the national interest.

I call upon those members who approve of the proposed discussion to rise in their places. (More than the number of members required by the Standing Orders having risen in their places)
