The CHAIRMAN - The amendment is not in order. It conveys no meaning different from that which is conveyed in the title.

Mr WARD - I think you asked the. committee if it were prepared to agree to the title of the bill. My reason for proposing my amendment is that I do not think the title of the bill adequately describes this measure.

The CHAIRMAN - When I put the question the honorable member will be able to exercise his right of voting against the title, but the amendment he proposes is not in order.

Mr WARD - The ruling is probably correct, because as far as I can see there is no difference between the meaning of the bill itself and the title I proposed, because I think it is one of the most barefaced robberies that have ever been perpetrated in this Parliament.

Mr Lyons - I ask that the honorable member withdraw those words.

The CHAIRMAN - I ask the honorable member to withdraw them.

Mr WARD - I withdraw them.
