Mr Killen - I rise to a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. The honorable member for Darebin (Mr. Courtnay) saidquite audibly, " This amounts to £40 worth of bribe ". This was contrary to Standing Order No. 77, and I ask that the honorable member be ordered to withdraw the statement.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! I ask the honorable member for Darebin whether he made the remark mentioned by the honorable member for Moreton.


Mr Courtnay - What remark?


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - The honorable member for Darebin heard the statement made by the honorable member for Moreton.


Mr Courtnay - I am sorry, Sir, I did not hear it. There was too much audible conversation.


Mr Killen - I repeat what I believe was said by the honorable member for Darebin - that this amounted to £40 a week bribe, implying that this had been offered to the judiciary. That is completely contrary to the Standing Orders and, I imagine, contrary to the whole sentiment of this House.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! The remarks suggested to have been made by the honorable member for Darebin were not heard by the Chair. Therefore, the Chair can give no ruling.
