Question - That the honorable member be further heard - put. The Committee divided.

DIVISION:NOES 28 (16 majority) AYES 12 PAIRS 0

Majority ... ... ... 16





Question so resolved in the negative.

Mr. WATSON(Bland).- I move-

That the Chairman do now leave the chair.

It seems to me, in view of the condition of irritation in which the Committee is, that it would be wise on the part of the Government to agree to adjourn. We have been trying the patience of the Chairman to a great extent to-night, and in his interests, as well as in the interests of the conduct of public business, it is reasonable that we should now adjourn, and allow the consideration of these Estimates to be resumed to-morrow. I must say that I have never before in this Parliament witnessed anything like what has occurred to-night.

Honorable Members. - Hear, hear.
