The PRESIDENT - Senator Webster,are you trying to attract my attention to ask a question?

Senator WEBSTER (VICTORIA) -My main interest is to know, Mr President, whether you would be prepared to put down a statement in the Senate indicating the manner in which you will call on questions in future?

The PRESIDENT - In reply to the honourable senator I shall repeat the statement which I have put down 4 times already in the last 12 months. But, Senator Webster, if you felt that I should have called you earlier I point out that I have just made a calculation from my list. In this place there are 21 Liberal Party honourable senators and S Australian Country Party honourable senators. The ratio of liberal Party honourable senators to Country Party honourable senators getting the call has been maintained all the way through.
