Mr FADDEN (Darling DownsLeader of the Opposition) - by leave - The Opposition is very pleased that the Government is agreeable to an examination of the regulations by a special committee, because it believes that it would be unwise to allow Part 3 of Statutory Rule, No. 76, to remain in its present form, as it would have damaging and disadvantageous effects upon our war effort. In principle, the regulations are similar to those promulgated successively by the right honorable member for Kooyong (Mr. Menzies) and myself, as Prime Minister, inasmuch we enforced restrictions in order to prevent the diversion of money from the war necessities of the nation. We consider, however, that in these regulations the Government has gone too far and has acted too harshly.

Mr.Rosevear. - On a point of order ! Has the honorable gentleman the right to debate the merits of the regulations, in view of the fact that they have merely been tabled?
