The SPEAKER -Order! The honourable gentleman must resume his seat.

Mr EDWARDS - And a significant number of those others-

The SPEAKER -Order! I ask the honourable member to resume his seat.

Mr Hayden - I raise a point of order. The honourable member can scarcely call himself an academic economist; he was the hired adviser of the Australian Medical Association.

The SPEAKER - Order! There is no point of order involved. I ask the House to listen to me, because I want to make it perfectly clear that any honourable member may be granted the opportunity to make a personal explanation only by the indulgence of the Chair. Any honourable member who abuses this privilege will certainly not be allowed to continue to make a personal explanation. This applies to every member of the House. If honourable members want to make a personal explanation they must keep within the prescribed limits and not debate any subject at all. I call the honourable member for Berowra and I ask him to keep within those limits.

Mr EDWARDS - I maintain that of this group a significant proportion-

The SPEAKER -The honourable member will resume his seat.

Mr EDWARDS - I am sorry, but I am of the opinion-

The SPEAKER -Order! The honourable member must resume his seat. He apparently does not even know how to make a personal explanation.
