Mr GABB (Angas) . - I support the motion for the suspension of the Standing Orders. As an independent member, I recognize that we have to be jealous of the rights and privileges of members of this House; but I feel that we have reached a stage in our history at which the private rights of members and the supersensitiveness of the Opposition must be brushed aside. We are faced with a desperate position, with a desperate man, and with a desperate government. I am prepared to support the Commonwealth Government in any action, however drastic it may be, that it takes to prevent the ship of state from drifting on to the financial rocks.
