Mr ANTHONY (Richmond) (12:43 PM) . - I raised this issue. I have moved the amendment before the Chair, and I have not asked for the appointment of a royal commission or for any inquiry. I have simply asked that the documents relating to " the Brisbane line ". and to the Australian forces sent to Ambon and Rabaul be tabled. I say to the Minister for Transport (Mr. Ward), who has also asked for an inquiry which might vindicate his good name, that if he will support my amendment I. shall cheerfully support the amendment foreshadowed by the honorable member for Warringah (Mr. Spender) to enable the Minister for Transport to clear his name from the stigma cast upon it by the royal commissioner.

Question put -

That the clause be postponed (Mr. Anthony's amendment).
