The PRESIDENT - Order ! The honorable senator is not entitled in asking a question to read a long extract from a newspaper. If that were permitted a whole sitting of the Senate might be occupied by honorable senators reading columns of matter from newspapers.

Senator NEEDHAM - I have no desire to infringe the Standing Orders. I want to ask the Minister of Defence if he considers such utterances conducive to good feeling amongst His Majesty's subjects, especially in view of the fact that thousands of Roman Catholics are to-day shedding their blood in defence of the Empire and the King? Should not the man who is responsible for these utterances be dealt with under the War Precautions Act?
