Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! The Minister is still on his feet speaking in the debate.

Mr Whitlam - But, Mr Deputy Speaker, you called me and I wish to move this because there are 8 minutes that the Minister has and 7 minutes for the debate. The Minister is talking the matter out to avoid a vote.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! The Leader of the Opposition will be seated. The Minister sat down because there was a point of order. The Minister is still speaking in the debate and he cannot be interrupted.

Mr KILLEN - I have no wish to reflect in any way on the Chair. I did sit down because a point of order was being taken. It was a matter of courtesy on my part. I only hope that a little of it rubs off. There is no doubt about it - chagrin can certainly manifest itself in an infinite variety of ways. Chagrin! If ever I have seen a childish churlish display of chagrin I have seen it today. The honourable and learned gentleman should be thoroughly ashamed of himself, after having been met with courtesy all round the chamber - the dominant quality of Government supporters.

Mr Allan Fraser (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Mr Deputy Speaker, am I entitled to move that the Minister be not further heard, so that the House may vote on this matter?
