Mr DALY (Grayndler) (Minister for Services and Property and Leader of the House) - I do not intend to waste a lot of time on a man who made a speech about me when he was asleep. The night I made the speech to which he has referred he was sound asleep over there on that side of the chamber. Then be got up and deliberately misled the House by saying that he had heard things said which he had not heard. The fact of the matter is that the honourable member for Mackellar (Mr Wentworth) was sound asleep that night, actually snoring loudly. He got up at the finish of my speech and proceeded to tell the House what I had said. It is an unbelievable experience to be accused of saying something by a man who is dead asleep. It must be an unusual event. Tonight he accused me of eavesdropping. I remind all honourable members of this Parliament that when they are sitting in their rooms listening to my speeches from time to time they are all eavesdroppers.

Mr Calder - You are an unmitigated liar.
