Mr PRICE (5:18 PM) —Mr Speaker, on indulgence on the point of order taken by the honourable member for Farrer, can I make the observation to you that, although the honourable member for Calwell has not raised this matter in respect of himself but says it on behalf of all other members, should you see that there is a prima facie case, and depending on the outcome of the Privileges Committee, the honourable member for Calwell is deserving of whatever protection that privilege provides for him. Therefore, your determination on this matter should be as quick as is reasonably possible.

Mr SPEAKER —I am sure the member for Chifley understands the context in which I made my earlier comments and I will bear his in mind as well.
