The CHAIRMAN - The honorable senator will be in order if he can connect his remarks with the clause now under discussion.

Senator LAMP - I am endeavouring to show honorable senators why Australia is flooded with imported music.

The CHAIRMAN - The honorable senator's remarks would have been quite in order on the second reading of the bill. He is in order in drawing the attention of the committee to the fact that, in his opinion, the clause now under discussion should be amended to provide that the time devoted by the Australian Broadcasting Commission to local artists should be increased, but a general statement such as that which he is now making cannot be made at this stage.

Senator LAMP - May I have it incorporated in Hansard at this stage?

The CHAIRMAN - No. It will be competent for the honorable senator to deal with that subject on the third reading of the bill.

Senator LAMP - All I can say is that, you, Mr. Chairman, are prohibiting legitimate argument in support of Australian song- writers.

The CHAIRMAN - Order! The honorable senator is not entitled to make such a statement I should be the last to provent relevant discussion, but as I have already pointed out, it will be competent for the honorable senator to raise the subject on the motion for the third reading of the bill.
