Mr White - When the Minister for the Army attempted to make a statement I, with other honorable members on 'this side of the chamber, raised the objection that such a. statement should be made at the conclusion of questions without notice. I understood that that arrangement had been made. You, Mr. Speaker, wrongly said I had repeatedly interjected. I had not.

Mr SPEAKER - The honorable membar is repeating his offence.

Mr White - I said that if that was intended for listeners, it was not true. You immediately demanded a withdrawal and apology and then named me. . That is not fair. It is bludgeoning of honorable members. I am only asking for my rights here.

Mr SPEAKER - Order !

Honorable members interjecting,

Mr White - What is happening is typical of the larrikinism in this House.

Mr SPEAKER - The honorable member is not entitled to use expressions of that kind, even in division.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Mr White - I bow to the decision of Rafferty.

Mr SPEAKER - I shall deal with the honorable member when he reappears after the lapse of aweek.
