Mr MENZIES (Kooyong) (Leader of the Opposition) . - I gathered from what he said, that the Minister for Air desires to make a statement in reference to certain allegations that have had wide publicity.

Mr Chifley - And in reference to which questions have been asked in this House.

Mr MENZIES - That is so. .1 am not objecting to the making of the statement, the matter having been raised in this House. But I suggest that the Minister would do well if, having made his statement, he moved that it be printed ; because the matter is not of such a nature that it would necessarily be concluded when one statement upon it had been made. There may be, 911 both sides of the House, honorable members who desire to debate it. Therefore, the Minister should follow the normal practice in such circumstances, and thus allow a debate upon his statement to take .place either immediately or at some future date.
