Mr WHITLAM (Werriwa) .- The remarks which the honorable member for Moreton (Mr. Killen) has just uttered were clearly irrelevant to this clause. Furthermore, they were utter humbug. He is only seeking notoriety in his customary way by trying to get written into *' Hansard " and into the newspapers things which were not reported in " Hansard " and which, you yourself, Mr. Temporary Chairman, said that you did not hear when he tried to get notoriety from it earlier. It is the technique of merely protesting about something in order to gain publicity from it. He has read into " Hansard " things which in fact were not heard by you, which were not heard at the centre table and which nobody protested against in a legitimate fashion at the time. That is the technique which the honorable member adopts in season and out of season, lt is his stock in trade in these matters. During divisions, and every time when the committee has been unduly quiet, he has been trying to catch your attention by taking points of order and so on and by protesting in his spurious way at matters which otherwise would not have been heard or reported.


Order! I think you should leave the Chair to look after those matters.
