Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Hon J M Chanter - Order!


Sir JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Navy) - Yes, and I am always willing to. It is time the honorable member for Maribyrnong took a back seat.


Mr Fenton - I am in a back seat now.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - The honorable member is again out of order in interjecting after I have called for order.


Mr Fenton - Who said so ?


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order !


Sir JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Navy) - The Minister has moved--

Honorable members interjecting,


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - I have already warned honorable members-


Mr Fenton - What a one-sided individual you are.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order ! In view of that insulting and disorderly remark, I have no other course to pursue but to name the honorable member for Maribyrnong (Mr. Fenton), and ask the Minister in charge of the House to take the necessary action.


Sir JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Navy) - The honorable member for Maribyrnong does this every day, and there is no other course open to me but to move -

That the honorable member for Maribyrnong be suspended for the remainder of the sitting.


Mr Riley - Mr. Deputy Speaker, I desire to know--


Sir JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Navy) - He does this every day.


Mr Fenton - Because we have a oneeyed Deputy Speaker. He works for his party every time, and the public ought to know it.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - I again call the attention of the House to the continued defiance of the honorable member for Maribyrnong.


Mr Mathews - The Government are anxious to exhibit their brutal majority.
