Mr CALWELL (Melbourne) - I move:

That Mr Deputy Speaker's ruling be disagreed with.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! In reply to the right honourable member for Melbourne I would point out that I did not give a ruling. This is a procedural factor within the Parliament itself. If I may be permitted to say so, I remember quite some time ago a particular instance in which the honourable member for New England had actually started speaking and Speaker Cameron then gave the call to a Minister. That is the procedure of the House.


Mr Calwell - Then I shall move that your ruling that you did not give a ruling, be disagreed with.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! I did not give a ruling that I did not give a ruling.


Mr Calwell - Mr Deputy Speaker, if we are going to have Rafferty's Rules, I shall move that the House do now adjourn.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! While the right honourable member for Melbourne is on his feet I would suggest that the honourable member for Grayndler resume his seat.
