The PRESIDENT - Order ! The honorable senator is now going beyond the limits of a personal explanation.

Senator DE LARGIE - Knowing, as I do, the Argus reporter who was in the press gallery at the time the incident occurred, I can hardly blame him for the report which appears in that newspaper. I do not think that it was initiated there. 7'he responsible party, I hope, is to be found in the Argus office, down the street. I make this explanation in fairness to Senator St. Ledger, who was in no way responsible for my rejoinder. I have so frequently expressed my views upon the reports which I, in common with other Labour senators, get in the Argus, that it is quite unnecessary to repeat them.

Senator Millen - I hope that the honorable senator will support my motion in regard to the publication of press reports of our proceedings.

Senator DE LARGIE - I shall be delighted to do so.
