Mr SPEAKER - The surprise of the honorable member is very interesting, but he must know that the Standing Orders provide that questions shall be asked for the purpose of eliciting information, and not for the purpose of giving it.

Mr WHITE - Russia has received a bigger share of the exports than have Great Britain, New Zealand, or any of the Dominions.
