Mr DALY (MARTIN, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the AttorneyGeneral seen a statement attributed to the honorable member for Warringah, in which the honorable member is reported to have stated that, if Labour is returned to office, the people might expect the High Court to be stacked with Labour supporters? Does the Attorney-General not consider that statement to be inaccurate, misleading and utterly false? Will the right honorable gentleman outline to the House the appointments that have been made to the High Court since Labour assumed office in 1941, and state whether or not the Government has already had ample opportunity -

Mr Anthony - I rise to order.I submit, Mr. Deputy Speaker, that the honorable member is not asking a question but is inviting the Attorney-General to make a statement on a matter of general policy. In so doing, I contend that the honorable member is out of order.
