Senator COLLINGS (Queensland) (4:44 AM) . - I rise at this early hour to speak on the motion for the adjournment only because I know that very little opportunity will be afforded me to speak on a similar motion on the next day of sitting. Honorable senators on that occasion will not be in the humour to listen to anything I have to say. I consider that what has happened in this chamber to-day is an absolute disgrace to a deliberative assembly.

Senator Sir George Pearce - I rise to a point of order. I submit that the honorable senator is not entitled to reflect upon the proceedings of the Senate.

The PRESIDENT (Senator the Hon. P. J. Lynch) . - The Leader of the Opposition (Senator Collings) was certainly out of order, and undoubtedly forgot himself in making the remark to which objection has been taken. I ask him to withdraw it.

Senator COLLINGS -I certainly did not forget myself. I made the statement deliberately, and I meant it; hut I withdraw it.
