Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Lucock -I was discussing a matter with the Clerk. 1 did not actually hear the words but I mink that perhaps the honourable member might rephrase the sentence. I think it is one that would be better not said in that way.

Mr COTTER -I will rephrase the sentence, Mr Deputy Speaker. The Government supporter to whom I referred is undecided as to who he should have as favourite for these stakes: The honourable member for Chifley is the most consistent speaker in the House, the man who probably is well known in commercial circles. The honourable member for Hunter has the brownest arms in the business, permanently crooked from tipping buckets. Perhaps it is the dodo bird with 3 hats. But whatever the result of the book, we have been subjected to the dampest parade of wet shags that I have seen for some long, long while. All are strutting and all are vying for the judge's eye. All their performances are aimed at the Caucus votes. Still the honourable member for Hindmarsh waits and waits. Revenge is sweet.
