Mr BEALE - If the honorable member for East Sydney will take a day off and write out the question carefully in a legible hand-

Mr Ward - That was what the Prime Minister told you to do with the question. Ke knew you would bungle the answer in the same way as you bungled the test.

Mr BEALE - I repeat, if the honorable member will write out his question carefully and legibly I shall give it some attention. But may I say this, Mr. Speaker, in a brief answer to the honorable gentleman - certainly briefer than his question: The honorable gentleman must be notably confused in his mind about this matter, or what he is pleased to call his mind, because there was no grounding of aircraft-

Mr Ward - Yes, there was!

Mr BEALE - I beg your pardon!

Mr Ward - There was!

Mr BEALE - There was no grounding of aircraft. Not a single aircraft was grounded or diverted.

Mr Ward - I am telling you there was.

Mr BEALE - I am telling you there was not.
