Mr RYAN (FLINDERS, VICTORIA) - In view of the fact that time is of great importance in this House, and in order that the work of the Parliament may be carried out expeditiously, at the same time relieving members of the Executive Council as far as possible from the necessity for spending long hours in this chamber, I ask you, Mr. Speaker, whether you consider that the length of speeches made by members could be shortened without detracting from their effect and importance? If so, will you, sir, consider making a recommendation on those lines to the Standing Orders Committee of the House?

Mr Sheehan - That is a matter for honorable members, not for Mr. Speaker-
