Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - That is so.

Mr THOMPSON - In that case I have nothing further to say.

Mr Coleman - On a point of order: Is it not possible to criticize the bill on the ground of its inadequacy, and to argue that certain other matters ought to be covered by it?

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - If the honorable member will turn to the title of the bill he will see that it is " a bill for an act to amend sections 4, 39, 45, and 47 of the Invalid and Old-age Pensions Acts 1908-1926." The discussion must, therefore, of necessity, be confined to those sections.

Mr Coleman - Would it not be correct for an honorable member to argue that it is wrong to restrict the amendments to sections 4, 39, 45, and 47?

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - No; that would not be within the scope of the bill.
