The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Mr Atkinson (WILMOT, TASMANIA) - The honorable member for West Sydney (Mr. Ryan) will proceed.


Mr RYAN - I am surprised that the Treasurer should have risen to a point of order, having regard to the suggestion he made this morning while the honorable member for Hunter was speaking, that I had something to do with the move which was taking place at that time.


Sir JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Treasurer) - What move?

Mr.RYAN. - I am not courting the smiles of my honorable friends on the front Treasury bench. I can stand on my reputation. It is clean, and will not be enhanced either by the smiles of honorable members on the front Treasury bench, or toy the encomiums of their capitalistic supporters outside. I canstand by my reputation, and cannot be damaged by the bitterattacksof the Ministerial party.
