Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -The Minister for External Affairs has been called. At this stage there is no-


Mr Daly - Mr Deputy Speaker, I rise to order. I moved that motion before the Treasurer rose and you gave me the call. In accordance with the Standing Orders I exercise my right.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -The honourable member for Sturt will resume his seat.


Mr Daly - Mr Deputy Speaker, I take a point of order-

Mr Daly -I move dissent from your ruling.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! There is no ruling.

Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I rise to order. I am taking a point of order, Billy. Would you just sit down for a while.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! The honourable members for Hindmarsh and Grayndler will resume their seats. There is no question before the Chair at the moment I suggest that the Minister for External Affairs and the Deputy Leader of the Opposition, who, on behalf of the Opposition, is in charge of the business before the House, might decide what the House should do.


Mr Daly - Mr Deputy Speaker-


Mr McMahon - Mr Deputy Speaker, I ask for leave-


Mr Daly - I move:

That the Minister for External Affairs be not further heard.


Mr McMahon - Mr Deputy Speaker, I ask for leave to move a motion relating to peace in Cambodia.


Mr Barnard - Leave is refused.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! Leave is not granted.


Mr Barnard - Mr Deputy Speaker, I ask for leave to move a motion.


Mr Snedden - Leave is not granted.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Leave is not granted.


Mr Scholes - Mr Deputy Speaker-


Mr Hayden - Mr Deputy Speaker, there is an honourable member on his feet on this side of the House.


Mr Scholes - I move:

That so much of the Standing Orders be suspended as would prevent the Deputy Leader of the Opposition moving a motion.


Mr Daly - I second that motion.
