Senator ARKINS (New South Wales) .- Under the item of "Miscellaneous Services in Civil Aviation Branch ", I wish to refer to the case of a young Australian who, for some time, was a most successful commercial pilot.

The CHAIRMAN - The honorable senator will not be in order in discussing that subject under this proposed vote. On the first reading of the bill an honorable senator is entitled to speak for one and a half hours on subjects which need not be relevant to the bill, and may be granted an extension of half an hour, but when the measure is in committee he must confine his remarks to some item of expenditure.

Senator ARKINS - I spoke on tho first reading of the bill, but I did not have sufficient time to discuss the matter which I now wish to raise.

The CHAIRMAN - If the Minister explains the purposes for which the money under miscellaneous services is to he appropriated, the honorable senator will be better able to determine whether the point he wishes to raise is relevant to such expenditure.
