Mr MAHON (Coolgardie) - I wish to state that the account which the honorable member for Kooyong has given of what took place on the afternoon in question is absolutely correct. The incident occurred on12th October last. An effort was made, both by honorable members opposite and by myself, to secure a division on the Home Rule motion that afternoon, and I asked the honorable member for Kooyong, who desired to speak, whether he would forego his right. He very kindly consented to do so. Later on, owing to certain developments, I informed the honorable member that there was no likelihood of a division taking place that afternoon, so that it would be open to him to avail himself of an opportunity ito address himself to the question. I wish to corroborate the honorable member's statement.
