Senator ST LEDGER (QUEENSLAND) - Arising out of the answer, may I ask whether the Government will give some indication as to what they mean by the term " other things being equal " ?

Senator McGREGOR - I may state for the information of the honorable senator that the conditions are those which would induce a client to accept his services in preference to those of any other lawyer belonging to the same union.

Senator ST LEDGER - Suppose that a client rejects me, am I going to have preference from somebody else?

The PRESIDENT - The honorable senator is entitled to ask a question arising out of the answer, but not to state an argument.

Senator ST LEDGER - I am not arguing, sir. Arising out of the answer which the Vice-President of the Executive Council has given, may I ask how, if a unionist declines to come to me, the principle of preference will operate?

Senator McGREGOR - I should like the honorable senator to give notice of that question.

Senator ST LEDGER - I shall give notice.
