The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Mr Atkinson (WILMOT, TASMANIA) - I did not hear the words uttered by the honorable member for Barrier.


Mr Higgs - I did, and I insist upon their withdrawal.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN.If the honorable member for Barrier has said anything offensive to the honorable member for Capricornia (Mr. Higgs), I request that what he said be withdrawn.


Mr Considine - If I have said anything offensive to the honorable member for Capricornia (Mr. Higgs) - if I could say anything offensive to him - I withdraw it.


Mr Higgs - I object to the terms of that withdrawal, which, I say, is qualified and more offensive even than the original words. I hope, Mr. Atkinson, you will protect me; if you do not, I shall have to rise and say something in retaliation, and that I do not wish' to do.
