Dr MALONEY (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) . - I take the opportunty to protest against a decision of this House with, respect to a recent ruling from the Chair. If honorable members who then voted in support of that ruling were right, they are bound now to stand behind the honorable member for Melbourne Ports (Mr. Mathews). A legal member of Cabinet said a certain case was sub' judice. Two. legal gentlemen on this side of the House said it was not sub judice.' The Government could not be blamed for accepting the views of their advisers ; but they must remember that the same technicality was not availed of in another place, where debate was freely permitted.
