Mr SPEAKER - The honorable member will find, if he looks at Standing Order 139, that it provides -

When it is proposed to leave out words in the main question, in order to insert or add others, no amendmenttothe words proposed to be inserted or added can be entertained until the question - that the words proposed to be left out stand part of the main question - has been determined.

So that, while the honorable member can now intimate that he proposes to move in a certain direction, the statement of his amendment and the opportunity of voting upon it must await the decision upon the question whether the words proposed to be omitted stand part of the question.

Mr Watson - Ishallhavean opportunity of moving the amendment later ?

Mr SPEAKER - The honorable member may formally state his amendment now, and he will have an opportunity of moving it at the proper time.
