Mr LATHAM - Arising out of your ruling, Mr. Speaker, with regard to a question just asked by the honorable member for Balaclava, I ask the Prime Minister if he will give consideration to the advisableness of amending any standing order which requires that a member asking a question based on a news paper report, shall go through the formality of professing to vouch for its accuracy, or whether, if there is no such standing order, he will consider the introduction of some rule which will introduce ordinary common sense into our proceedings?
