Mr SPEAKER - The question before the Chair is the motion for the third read ing of the Bill. When the honorable member for Bland went, as I thought,, beyondthe scope ofthe motion, I called him to order, and I cannot allow the honorable member for New England to proceed beyond the limits to which I allowed, that honorable member to go.

Mr LONSDALE - The honorable member made statements as to the attitude of the Opposition, to which there should be some reply. We have treated the Government fairly, and any waste of time that has occurred has been due to Ministerial action. I do not wish to discuss the Bill at this stage, but feel it incumbent upon me to defend the Opposition from the unwarrantable attack made upon it by the honorable member for Bland.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a third time.
