Mr SPEAKER - If the honorable and learned member desires to debate the motion at all, it must stand over.


Mr CROUCH - I merely wish to ask a question.


Mr SPEAKER - The honorable and learned member cannot ask a question at this stage. If he objects to the motion, it cannot be proceeded with.


Mr CROUCH - Upon a point of order, I desire to know whether by leave of this House, and of the mover, I cannot move an amendment?


Mr SPEAKER - The honorable and learned member can no doubt accomplish his object by leave of the House, and of the mover, but it would have been well if he had previously communicated his desire to the honorable member for Wentworth. However, I will put the matter to the House. Is it the pleasure of honorable members that the honorable and learned member for Corio have leave to submit an amendment ?

Honorable Members. - Hear, hear.

Amendment (by Mr. Crouch) proposed -
