Mr MENZIES - I have a very humanunderstanding of this problem, but I realize more than ever that I did rather open the door when I was beguiled by my friend, the honorable member for Bendigo, into- receiving a deputation the other day, and I hope that my friend the honorable member for Macquarie will not misunderstand me when I say that 1 just cannot go on doing that; there are one or two other things that I have to do. But I will certainly have a talk to my colleagues about the point that he raises. Nobody gets any pleasure out of this. Rearrangements are made, there are always adjustments to be made and, of course, unfortunately, somebody, I hope very temporarily, suffers in the adjustment. But he has made his point, and I will have a word with my colleagues about it. He will forgive me if 1 say that I myself cannot go on receiving deputations on these matters.
