Mr MENZIES (KOOYONG, VICTORIA) (Prime Minister) - The first part of the honorable member's question is clearly related to a matter of very high policy, and is not a suitable subject to raise at question time. I point out to the honorable gentleman that if he is interested in preserving the positron of the House of Representatives in the constitutional structure with regard to major financial measures, he might well address himself to his own side of the

Parliament. It is not without remarkable significance that the Labour Party, which claims to assert the financial authority of this House, permitted or instructed all of its members in the Senate to vote in exactly the opposite direction.
