Mr SPEAKER (Hon J S Rosevear -Order !

Mr ARCHIE CAMERON - The " white rabbit " is a little annoying to-night. The next matter is unemployment benefits. I remember when the National Insurance Bill was passed in this Parliament, with great difficulty I admit, and with not very much support from honorable .members opposite. No question was raised then regarding the constitutionality of the bill and the payments which might have been made under it.

Mr Conelan Mr. Conelan interjecting,

Mr ARCHIE CAMERON - I was a member of the Government which introduced the National Insurance Bill, and I know a good deal about its history. However, this is not the time for me to deal with that aspect. It may suit the honorable member's book because, I am well ,aware that he will have some difficulty in explaining to his constituents his attitude towards some of these matters.
