The CHAIRMAN - The honorable member has not raised a point of order.

Mr SEABROOK - Although my remarks appear to hurt the susceptibilities of honorable members opposite, I am not concerned with what they think. I am here to say what I think. I say definitely that honorable members of the Opposition do not desire that every man shall be employed, because in that case they will lose their trump card - unemployment.

Mr Blakeley - The honorable member for Franklin (Mr. Seabrook) has made the definite statement - not merely, the expresion of his own opinion - that honorable members on this side of the chamber do not desire that every man shall be employed. That statement is untrue, and therefore should be withdrawn.

The CHAIRMAN - Am I to understand that the honorable member for Darling takes exception to the statement ?
