Mr SPEAKER -The right honorable gentleman may have' been more fortunate than I was. I say frankly that- half the question was lost -by me because of the interruption that occurred while it was being asked. I deprecate questions which involve propaganda. The submission pf such questions is not confined to members on one side of the House.

Mr Menzies - I did' not say that it is.

Mr SPEAKER - I have endeavoured, to the best of my ability, to' keep questions within the scope of the Standing Orders ; that is- to say, they must not introduce debate, or invite debate from .the Minister. I do not' think that I can rule this question out of order, although it is. of a class which I believe should not be asked. .
