Sir HENRY GULLETT (Henty) - With all respect, I appeal to the Prime Minister (Mr. Lyons) to vary his decision and withdraw his objection to a statement being made upon the mutter before the House.

Mr SPEAKER - Order ! That could not be done now ; there is a motion before the House.

Sir HENRY GULLETT - Would it not be possible for the Acting Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Forde) to repeal his request for leave to make a statement?

Mr SPEAKER - The Acting Leader of the Opposition could, by leave, withdraw his motion and repeat his request for leave to make a statement.

Sir HENRY GULLETT - I respectfully appeal to the Prime Minister to vary his decision. In view of the fact that the holders of two so important portfolios, such as Defence and Trade and Customs, have been placed in a position secondary to the holders of six other portfolios--

Mr SPEAKER - Order ! The honorable member will not be in order in discussing the allocation of portfolios at this juncture.

Sir HENRY GULLETT - That is a matter which definitely concerns not only every honorable member on this side, but also every honorable member in this House.

Mr SPEAKER - Order!
