Mr SPEAKER - Order ! It is out of order to state that the reply given by any Minister is unsatisfactory. I suggest that the honorable member should ask his question without any preliminary remark.

Mr JAMES - Has the attention of the Prime Minister been drawn to the press report of a speech that was made by Mr. Latham to the Royal Empire Society, London, a portion of which reads -

Was the Attorney-General speaking with the authority of the Government, and did he then announce the settled policy of the Commonwealth Government's representatives at Ottawa?

Mr LYONS - I do not propose to offer any comment on a reported statement of the Attorney-General until I know that the report is accurate.
