Mr MULCAHY (Lang) . - I support the honorable member for Balaclava (Mr. White) and the Acting Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Forde) in their opposition, to this motion. The matter mentioned by the honorable member for Balaclava is important. The Repatriation Act has 'been in operation for more than twenty years, and it should be reviewed. Honorable members will have no opportunity to discuss private members' business during this period of the session if the motion be carried. No other opportunity will present , itself before the adjournment of the House on the 9 th June. Then, when the House reassembles, the budget will be presented and debated, and, no doubt, legislation will be introduced arising out of the bud get. I trust that the House will decide to retain, private members' day 'to-morrow.
