Mr WARD (East Sydney) .- The moving of a motion of this kind is preliminary to the early closing of the Parliament.

Mr Harold Holt - Your attitude to the Crimes Bill has shown how sincere you are.

Mr WARD - I can understand the Treasurer (Mr. Harold Holt) wanting to hurry back to his spear-fishing and to visit the Isle of Capri again in the near future. This Parliament has much more important work to concern it than that which has been engaging the Treasurer. I disagree with some of my colleagues in relation to what has been called the Treasurer's zigzag policy. I do not think that the Treasurer even knows what it is all about. I do not think that he has a clue. I think that he merely reads what is handed to him on scraps of paper by the economic experts in the department.
