Mr MENZIES (Kooyong) (Leader of the Opposition) . - Debate was proceeding this afternoon in the House on a matter of importance affecting the position of the Chair. I was asked, as Leader of the Opposition, whether there would be any objection to the Minister for Immigration (Mr. Calwell) intervening at 8 o'clock in the course of that debate in order to make an important statement on immigration. I said that I had no objection to that whatever. I certainly understood that, when that statement had been made, we should return to the business before the Chair. There was one interruption with a bill in relation to housing. Now, apparently, there is to he another, and I must say that it is completely inconsistent with the proposal that was put before me.
