Mr SPEAKER - A point of order may not be taken in regard to a statement with which the honorable member disagrees; he may make his explanation later.

Mr THOMPSON - The honorable member for West Sydney informed me that the honorable member for Hunter was going to the Maitland show.

Mr James - The Maitland show was not held on that day.

Mr THOMPSON - I trust that I am not so lacking in a sense of humour as to approach honorable members in the corner opposite to learn whether they intend to vote against this Government, as the honorable member for East Sydney has alleged that I did. In reply to his charge that I acted the part of a coward, 1 merely repeat what I said on the occasion in question ; that is, that J voted for the adjournment of the tobacco debate on the assurance of the Prime Minister (Mr. Lyons) that we should have another opportunity of dealing with the question.
