Mr SPEAKER -I heard no call for a division. The Standing Orders provide that, if a division is desired, an honorable member must ask for it.

Mr Calwell - We asked for it.

Mr SPEAKER - I did not hear any honorable member call for a division.

Mr Calwell - We called for a division. You did not adopt the usual practice of asking us whether or not we desired a division.

Mr SPEAKER - The Clerk was reading the title of the bill. I heard no call for a division, and I am not deaf. The Clerk will continue to read the title of the bill.

Mr Calwell - We called for a division long before the Clerk rose.

Mr Ward - We want a division.

Mr ERIC J HARRISON (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) Mr. Eric J. Harrison interjecting,

Mr Ward - You should sit down, Lord Garbage.

Mr SPEAKER - I heard a reference to garbage. If the honorable member for East Sydney made it, I ask him to withdraw it.

Mr Ward - I withdraw it.

Mr Rosevear - May I, Mr. Speaker, direct your attention to the fact that during your occupancy of the chair earlier this week, the word " garbage " was used at least 50 times, and you did not take any notice of it?

Mr SPEAKER - My attention was not called to it. I myself heard it just now.

Bill read a third time.
