Mr SPEAKER (the Hon Sir Littleton Groom (DARLING DOWNS, QUEENSLAND) - The honorable member is evidently overlooking the fact that the motion is for the suspension of the Standing Orders.


Mr CHARLTON -I am aware that the motion is for the suspension of the Standing Orders, and I think it entitles me to give reasons for protesting against the way in which business has been conducted. I hope that what has happened at this extended sitting will never occur again. After Parliament has been closed for three parts of the year honorable members have been expected to sit night and day to do the country's work, and do it badly, as could only be expected in the circumstances.
