Mr MCDONALD (Corangamite) (8:50 AM) - Mr. Prowse-

The CHAIRMAN (Mr. Prowse).The debate is closed.

Mr McDonald - You gave the Treasurer the call in preference to me, although I had not spoken.

Mr Clark - That does not matter.

Mr McDonald - It does matter. I have certain rights. I suppose that no honorable member occupies the time of this chamber less than I do.

Sir Earle Page - On a point of order, I submit that the speech of the Treasurer does not close the debate. It is absolutely essential that in committee the Treasurer shall have the right to intervene at any time. That has been the practice in this Parliament ever since I have been a member of it. I believe, also, that the Standing Orders make that provision.
