M.   Chanter). -During the discussion on the Industrial Peace Bill yesterday, the honorable member for Melbourne Ports (Mr. Mathews) raised a point of order. The honorable member said that on a previous occasion I had given a ruling that the matter then under discussion was sub judice, and was therefore not in order, and he contended that the Industrial Peace Bill is not properly before the House, because there are 42 cases before, or about to come before, the Arbitration Court, and that these were therefore sub judice. The former case was entirely a personal one, dealing with an individual, and the case of the Industrial Peace Bill being altogether different, I ruled that it was properly before the House. It is now for the House to decide the question.
