Mr SPEAKER (Hon 0 H Mackay (LILLEY, QUEENSLAND) - I have received from the honorable member for Capricornia (Mr. Forde) an intimation that he desires to move the adjournment of the House this afternoon for the purpose of discussing a definite matter of urgent public importance, namely, " The need for further encouragement of the Australian tobacco industry, and the reduction to consumers in the price of tobacco made from the Australian-grown leaf, by increasing the protective duty on imported tobacco leaf by ls. per lb., and decreasing the excise duty by ls. 3d. per lb., on all Australianmade tobacco ".

The suggested motion cannot be allowed, not only because it contains more than one definite subject for discussion, and is therefore in conflict with Standing Order No. 38, but also because it anticipates Order of the Day No. 15, and is therefore in conflict with Standing Order No. 117.
