Mr RYAN (West Sydney) .- I move-

That the clause be postponed.

The Committee is not in a mood to deal with this or any other business. We have had from the Prime Minister (Mr. Hughes) and his colleagues this afternoon an exhibition of absolute contempt for the want of confidence motion of which notice was given by the Leader of the Opposition yesterday.

The CHAIRMAN (Hon. J. M. Chanter) . - Order !

Mr GREENE (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Trade and Customs) - I rise to a point of order. I submit that the honorable member, in offering reasons why this clause should be postponed, cannot traverse in any way a previous decision or action of the House.
