Mr HUGHES - I do not know whether the newspaper report is correct or not. The remarks certainly appeared in the press, but, as we have already heard from the honorable member for Wakefield (Mr. Richard Foster), quite a number of things appear in the press which are inaccurate. If the newspaper report is accurate I think that the remarks are most improper. The functions of this Legislature, and the functions of the Judiciary, are clearly defined, and just as comment here would be greatly resented, indeed, not permitted, on the work of the Judiciary, so neither should the Judiciary indulge in such comment upon and criticism of the Legislature.
