Mr WENTWORTH (Mackellar) - In that case I move:

That so much of the Standing Orders be suspended as would preclude me from making a statement for a time not exceeding 5 minutes on the matters raised by the Minister for Labour.

I am no going to detain the House for long in this regard. Without discussing the substance of this matter, I want to put the point that in all fairness a member in these circumstances should be allowed by the House to reply. During question time today a question was asked of the Minister by a member of his own side. I would not accuse the Minister of having prearranged that question -

Mr Scholes - I raise a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Suggest corrections
