Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Clark (DARLING, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Order! Does the honorable member propose to refer to a ruling of the Chair?

Mr LANG - No. I do not intend to reflect on a ruling of the Chair.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - The honorable member is not entitled to discuss the matter upon which the Chair has just given a ruling.

Mr LANG - No, I am not doing so. I desire to direct attention to a most important matter. The presiding officer in the Legislative Assembly of New South Wales, with the proceedings of which I am most familiar, has always ruled that legal proceedings that are engaging the attention of the Arbitration Court, and, indeed, the courts of justice, are sub judice and has forbidden any reference to them. Consequently I was rather surprised when I heard-

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - The honorable member must not canvass the ruling of the Chair.
