Mr HARRISON (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - By voting for my amendment, he can prove to the committee and the country that he sincerely desires an investigation. I also wish to give to the Prime Minister (Mr. Chifley) an opportunity to do what the Opposition and the country would regard as the decent thing. While the last division was being taken he must have reflected upon what had been said by the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Menzies). If he now considers it necessary to do so, he can state whether or not the charge made by the Minister for Transport was levelled on behalf of the Government, and can authorize the investigation which that Minister claims he desires.

Question put -

That the schedule be postponed (Mr. Harrison's amendment).
