Senator ARKINS (NEW SOUTH WALES) - With all respect, and in view of the debates on previous items, I ask whether it is impossible for me to discuss a matter of administration. Administration is absolutely interlocked with finance; I am unable to separate the two matters.

The CHAIRMAN - This is not the time for a general discussion on matters that are not contained in these items. If honorable senators in committee were not compelled to confine themselves to discussion of the items under consideration, the dissertations would be interminable, and business would never be completed.

Senator Sir George Pearce - The honorable senator could raise this subject on the motion for the adjournment of the Senate.

The CHAIRMAN - There are plenty of opportunities for the honorable senator to express his views on this subject; at the present time, he is out of order in doing so.
