Mr ANSTEY (Bourke) .- I find myself in a most unfortunate position. I have been associated with the Labour movement from boyhood, and now it seems that to-day I am recreant to my party, though I am still under the impression that I am true to my conscience. I find myself left in a forlorn position upon things which I regard as of very high importance; but I say clearly that I owe no allegiance after to-night to this Govern ment, or to the men I find associatedwith them. The constituency of Bourke can have my resignation to-morrow. If I have not conducted myself properly, I am no longer fit to be a member of this Parliament.

Mr Fisher - The honorable member has made his announcement to the wrong place, though.
