Mr ANDERSON (Hume) .- 1 support the remarks that have been made by the honorable member for Perth (Mr. Chaney). I do not believe that broadcasting the parliamentary proceedings is in the best interests of the Parliament. Indeed, if the proceedings were not being broadcast to-day we would have received legislation from another place much quicker than we can expect to receive it. Broadcasting gives the wrong impression of the Parliament. A great deal of good work is done by honorable members on both sides of this House. I should like to refer to the remarks that were made by my friend and comrade, the honorable member for Reid (Mr. Uren;. However we might disagree in politics, we have had mutual experiences and have a mutual affection and respect for each other. Although he may not be in the ring, he will fight with all the weapons at his command. But he is shadow boxing, and he will continue to do so while he remains a member of the Australian Labour Party.

He has assured us that there is no subversive movement within the Labour Party.

Mr Ward - Mr. Speaker, I direct your attention to the state of the House. (Mr. Speaker having proceeded to count the House)-

Mr Ward - I direct your attention, Mr. Speaker, to the fact that the honorable member for Corio left the chamber after J had directed your attention to the state of the House.
