Mr Stokes - I rise to order, Mr. Temporary Chairman. While the bells were ringing for the division I heard the honorable member for Kingsford-Smith distinctly say that all judges were a pack of drongoes. I find that offensive, and ask that he be ordered to withdraw theremark.

Mr.Curtin. - I have been misrepresented, Mr. Temporary Chairman. I did not say they were a pack of drongoes. I said they were intellectual drongoes.


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN -

Order! I think the honorable member for Kingsford-Smith might withdraw the remark that they are intellectual drongoes. I ask him to withdraw it.


Mr Curtin - Withdraw what? Drongoes?


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN -

Order! I have asked the honorable member for Kingsford-Smith to withdraw the remark " intellectual drongoes ", referring to the judiciary.


Mr Curtin - I withdraw it.

Bill reported without amendment.
