The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN

Order! The term is not unparliamentary.


Mr Whitlam - I submit that it is, Sir.


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN -

The term is not unparliamentary.


Mr Whitlam - This is probably the first time you have heard it.


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN

Order! I take that remark as a reflection on the Chair, and I ask the Deputy Leader of the Opposition to withdraw it.


Mr Whitlam - I withdraw it, Sir.


Sir GARFIELD BARWICK - Should the Deputy Leader of the Opposition not apologize? If he has any manners, he will. Perhaps therein we see the reason why he has not done so.


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN -

Will the Attorney-General take his seat for a moment? There is far too much disorder in the chamber. Honorable members are well aware of the privileges that are committed to them. The hour is getting late, and we are trying to get through the business of this chamber. I am sure that all honorable members are anxious to complete it, and I ask them to .come to order.


Mr Allan Fraser (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Try to keep the Attorney-General in order.
