Mr BURY (Wenworth) .- Mr. Deputy Speaker-


Mr Ward - I rise to order. Earlier in the debate the honorable member for Wentworth secured the call and he immediately moved the adjournment of the debate. I direct attention to Standing Order No. 89 which reads -

The Member, upon whose Motion any debate shall be adjourned by the House, shall be entitled to pre-audience on the resumption of the debate.

On the resumption of the debate the honorable member for Wentworth was not in his place to receive the call. Standing Order No. 90 provides -

In the event of a Motion for the adjournment of the debate upon any Question being negatived, the Member moving the Motion for such adjournment may address the House at a later period during such debate.

That is in a case where the motion was negatived; in this case it was not negatived. Standing Order No. 64 reads -

No Member may speak twice to a Question before the House, except in explanation or reply.

I contend that as the honorable member for Wentworth had already received the call, and was not in his place on the resumption of the debate he is not entitled to speak at this juncture as in doing so he would be speaking twice to the question.
