Mr SPEAKER - Order. It is quite clear that the period of suspension has expired.

The Minister for Social Services is quite entitled to be in the House.

Mr Calwell - I rise to a point of order, Mr. Speaker, now that this matter has been raised. I am not unfriendly towards the honorable the Minister for Social Services, but a series of rulings on matters of this kind was given by Mr. Speaker Cameron; and the honorable member for East Sydney was a victim of them. When did the time expire which permitted the honorable member for Riverina to return to the chamber?

Mr SPEAKER - From memory, at 12.5 a.m. on the day following that on which the suspension was imposed. The Minister for Social Services may reply to the question asked by the honorable member for Port Adelaide.
