Mr WENTWORTH (Mackellar) - 1 had hoped that tonight I would have an opportunity to say something about the conduct of the Leader of the House (Mr Daly). I am hoping, Mr Speaker, that tomorrow night in the adjournment debate you will be kind enough to call me somewhat earlier in the proceedings so that I may have an opportunity to express at greater length my feelings and deductions that have to be put before this House and the country on the way that the Minister has been conducting himself and the proceedings in this House. I will not have an opportunity to do that tonight but I want to draw attention to what he said a few minutes ago. I believe he said that he was going to wear the jackboot. He is doing precisely that.

The Government makes a great show of the way in which it allows debates in this House, but on every important measure it truncates debate. We had a tremendous example of that today when the Bills relating to the Australian Industry Development Corporation were before the House. They are most important Bills and one would have thought that if the Government really believed in them it would have been glad to have had-

Mr SPEAKER -Order! It being 1 1 o'clock, the House stands adjourned until 10 a.m. tomorrow.
