The CHAIRMAN (Senator Bakhap - In connexion with such an involved clause as that which is now under consideration, it would be some time before I could decide upon the relevancy, or otherwise, to it of any argument which an honorable senator might advance. I am not disposed too rigidly to curtail the privileges of honorable senators. . There would need to be a very marked display of irrelevancy before I would rule the observations of any honorable senator out of order.

Senator PAYNE - I am afraid, sir, that you did not quite grasp my meaning.

Senator Gardiner - I rise to a point of order. A discussion of a question of procedure may be all right in its proper place, but I submit that Senator Payne is out of order in attempting to discuss a matter upon which you have already given your ruling.
