Senator O'KEEFE (TASMANIA) - Later in the year.

Senator McGREGOR - I thought it was to be introduced immediately. But no matter when it is to be introduced the Leader of the Government here ought to have an idea of what it is to do. Is it to be an amendment of the Commerce Act or an amendment of the Australian Industries Preservation Act? What is it going to be?

Senator Blakey - I rise to order, sir. In view of a ruling which has been given in another place I wish to ask you, for future guidance in debate, if Senator McGregor is in order on this motion in dealing with the question of trusts and combines when that question is the subject of an Order of the Day on the noticepaper. I desire to know whether we are to have a free and unfettered debate, to discuss general questions, or to deal with questions which are not specifically mentioned in Orders of the Day or notices of motion.
