The PRESIDENT - The honorable senator is not in order in referring to the Senate as a " sausage machine." I ask him to withdraw the remark.

Senator DE LARGIE - If my remark is a reflection on the sausage machine, I am sorry.

The PRESIDENT - The honorable senator must not attempt to ridicule my ruling. I ask him to comply with it.

Senator DE LARGIE - The reference to the " sausage machine " was, perhaps, too strong ; I should have done better had I referred to machine politics in the Senate. It cannot be denied that we are not being properly treated. The Government should bring its business before the Senate in a way that will enable us to give it full and careful consideration. Measures are kept so long before another place that they grow stale, so that when at last they do come before us all interest in them has disappeared.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
