Senator GUTHRIE (VICTORIA) . - I may not have expressed myself very clearly this afternoon, but there appears to me to be an impression created that some of us have axes to grind. I should like to explain that, personally, I have no axe to grind, and am not in this matter representing any company or any particular section of the community.

The PRESIDENT (Senator the Hon T Givens - Order!' That question does not arise on the amendment to which the honorable senator is speaking.

Senator GUTHRIE (VICTORIA) - Senator J. D. Millen, in speaking to the amendment before, the -Senate, said he could not understand how, if the. cost of production was lid. per lb.., and we propose to sell at a flat rate of 9d., and some wool would be sold at 2d. or 3d. per lb., we could expect to carry on.

The PRESIDENT - Order ! That matter does not arise on the amendment either. The honorable senator is now speaking to the general question. He is replying to statements made in the debate on the general question. He is entitled at present only to address himself to the second amendment, moved by Senator Gardiner.
