Mr SPEAKER - Order ! The honorable member is not entitled to reflect on the judiciary.

Mr JAMES - Was he also their legal advocate in the arbitration courts before his appointment to the chairmanship of the Central Coal Reference Board by the right honorable member for Kooyong (Mr. Menzies) when Prime Minister? If these are facts, how can the Minister expect the workers to have confidence in a man holding his prejudices, or harmony to prevail, when he has in bis keeping their economic life? Does the Minister not consider that the time is long overdue for his dismissal? If so, will he confer with me in order that a suitable man possessing mining knowledge may be appointed in his place?

Mr SPEAKER - The question reflects on the judiciaryand therefore is out of order.
