Mr CHARLTON (Hunter) .- I am entirely in accord with the motion. I have had considerable experience in a State Legislature, and in the Commonwealth Parliament, but so far I have not discovered that there is any utility in placing private members' motions on the notice-paper. I have never placed one on the business-sheet, either in the State House, or in the Commonwealth Parliament, because I realized the futility of doing so. The adoption of a motion submitted by a private member leads nowhere. I have never heard of any good being done by it.
