Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! If the honorable member will study the Standing Orders he will discover that he is not entitled to ask a question in the manner in which he has been doing so.

Mr BEALE - I ask the Minister whether it is a fact that Mr. Lucas, the Director of Works in the Northern Territory, resigned from the Legislative Council of the Northern Territory because he considered it his duty to exercise his independent judgment on matters that came before the council? Does the Government give directions to its nominee members of the Legislative

Council regarding how they shall vote? If so, of what use is the Legislative Council of the Northern Territory?
