Mr DUTHIE (WILMOT, TASMANIA) - I ask a question of you, Mr Speaker. Because alcoholic drinks have become gravely suspect at official functions in this Parliament, causing unfortunate personal repercussions and embarrassment and the interruption of normal parliamentary business, will you, Sir, suggest to the Joint House Committee that Tasmanian nonalcoholic cider and Tasmanian apple juice be added to the drinks available in the Parliament House dining rooms and at official functions in the future? I recommend these drinks as wholesome, palatable, pure and safe.

Mr SPEAKER - This is a very wise suggestion and I can assure the honourable member that it will receive my sincere consideration.
