Sir WILLIAM LYNE (HUME, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to make a personal explanation. I had been speaking for about an hour before the luncheon adjournment on Friday last, and when I re-entered the Chamber after luncheon, and found that there was not a quorum present, I asked the honorable member for Barrier if he would direct attention to the state of the House. I did so because the leader of the Government had been away from the Chamber for the whole of the time that I was speaking. He is seldom in the House, except when he is speaking himself, and many of his followers take the opportunity-

Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I rise to order. I submit that the honorable member may not cast reflections upon the actions of another honorable member while making a personal explanation.
