Mr G B EDWARDS (SOUTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to move an amendment providing for the recommittal of clause . 32A to enable me to again bring before the Committee a new clause which was partially discussed in my absence on a previous occasion.

Mr SPEAKER - As there seems to be some uncertainty as to the rights of honorable members to speak to the motion, I may inform the House that the position is that the motion we are now discussing- was moved by the then Prime Minister, the honorable member for Bland. The only other member who spoke to that motion was the honorable and learned member for Corinella, who concluded with an amendment, and the whole of the debate which followed, and which' extended over several days, was upon that amendment. That being so, the only honorable members who cannot speak to this motion, if they now desire to do so, are the honorable member for Bland and the Minister of Defence.
