Mr NAIRN (Perth) .- I have a suggestion to make which, I think, the Prime Minister (Mr. Menzies) might consider. It is the practice when the Government wants to get on with its own business, to allow one speech to be made on private members' day, and then to proceed with government business. I suggest that the honorable member foa* Balaclava (Mr. White) be permitted to make his speech. He appears to be the only honorable member who has an urgent matter to bring before the House.

Mr Forde - Surely the honorable member for Lilley (Mr. Jolly) was in earnest when he gave notice of Iris motion.

Mr NAIRN - The purpose of the Opposition is merely to harass the Government, as was shown by the talk of rocks ahead. I ask the Government to adopt my suggestion.
