Mr PROWSE (Forrest) .- Mr. Speaker--

Mr Makin - I am reluctant to take a point, of order; but I feel that it is due to the House and to the right honorable the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Scullin) that I should ask why you, Mr. Speaker, have given the call to the honorable member for Forrest. I do not, of course, desire to prevent that honorable member from contributing to the debate; but it is the traditional practice, and has been the invariable rule in this Parliament, that Ministers on the one side, and the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Scullin) on the other, shall be given priority of ordinary members. Further, the right honorable the Leader of the Opposition, should have priority, because he is an ex-Prime Minister.
