Mr FISHER - As regards the formal introduction of certain Bills-

Mr J oseph Cook - It is not formal.

Mr FISHER - Then it is the more necessary that their introduction shall be made part of the business.

Mr JOSEPH COOK - I should like an answerto my question. The right honorable member will, I think, see on reflection that what he has said is not an answer. My question to him - and I put it in all. sincerity, and beg of him to consider it seriously - is whether he will put aside what he regards as the formal stages of certain Bills, but what we do not so regard, and agree not to persevere with those proposals, until the Estimates are through the House?

Mr FISHER - I am unable to do that, notwithstanding the request of the right honorable member. If it is a challenge to the Government I accept it.

Mr Joseph Cook - It is not a challenge, it is an appeal.
