The PRESIDENT (Senator the Hon J Cunningham - The motion submitted by the Leader of the Opposition (Senator Collings) expresses the extreme disapproval of the Senate of the action of a member of the other branch of the legislature in reflecting upon a secret ballot of the Senate in a statement published in the Hobart Mercury. The statement made by the member of another place was made, not on the floor of the House of Representatives, but in the

State in which the newspaper is published, and therefore I rule that the motion is in order.
