QUESTION - MATRIMONIAL CAUSES BELL 1959


Mr HAYLEN (Parkes) .- In discussing the short title I should like to ask the Attorney-General (Sir Garfield Barwick) whether he is aware of the complete confusion in which he has placed the committee in regard to the multiplicity of amendments he has put before us. Surely we cannot properly discuss the short title if we do not really understand what we are discussing.


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN -

Order! The honorable member is out of order.


Mr HAYLEN - Surely if there is to be a discussion in committee on what the bill does it must be relevant that the amendments following the short title should be discussed either now or at a later stage.


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN -

Order! The short title is not to be amended.


Mr HAYLEN - Is it your ruling that we can discuss only the short title now?


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN
