Mr PETERS - In view of the question asked a few moments ago by the honorable member for Barker, I refer you, Mr. Speaker, to Standing Order 144, which reads -

Questions should not contain -

(g)   hypothetical matter.

Questions should not ask Ministers - (a) for an expression of opinion.

Mr Menzies - If that standing order were observed, there would be no questions at all in this House.

Mr PETERS - Mr. Speaker, my question is being directed to you, and your opinion is all that I desire. In future, will this standing order be ignored?
