Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! The honourable member will not address the Chair during a division.


Mr Donald Cameron (GRIFFITH, QUEENSLAND) - If I put my hand on my head I will.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! The honourable member has no right to address the Chair during a division.


Mr Donald Cameron (GRIFFITH, QUEENSLAND) - I want to draw your attention-


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! If the honourable member does not desist I will have to deal with him.

Question so resolved in the affirmative.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! The question now is that the Bill be now read a second time. Those in favour say aye, to the contrary no. I think the ayes have it. Is a division required? Ring the bells. (The Bells being rung)


Mr Gorton - I ask that the division be called off. The Opposition member in charge of the House did not ask for a division.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Any 2 members may call for a division. Two members called for a division. The division may be called off with leave of the House. I ask those who wish to have a division to rise in their places. If 2 members rise the division will continue. As no members who are in the minority rose requesting a division, no division is required. I have given a ruling and if any member wishes to dissent from it he is free to do so. I repeat that no division is required.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time.

Debate interrupted.
