Mr KILLEN (Moreton) .- I want to take a minute to make what I think are a few brief and well justified observations concerning the extraordinary remarks made by the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Calwell). During the last 24 hours he has been driven to rush into press referring, I think in singular terms of impropriety, to " wobbly " backbenchers - the honorable members for Paterson (Mr. Fairhall), Mitchell (Mr. Wheeler) and Chisholm (Sir Wilfrid Kent Hughes). He accused us, during the original committee stage of the bill, of having stonewalled. Yet, this afternoon, we have been listening to what amounts to a priceless display of humbug. He has emerged in great colours.

The CHAIRMAN (Mr. Bowden).Order! I remind the honorable member that there is an amendment before the Chair.

Mr KILLEN - I am quite conscious of that, but I had hoped that you would be indulgent enough, Mr. Chairman, at least to let me refer-

Mr Malcolm Fraser (WANNON, VICTORIA) - I rise to order, Mr. Chairman. Has this anything to do with the clause under discussion?

Mr Calwell - Apparently the colleague of the honorable member for Moreton regards him as disorderly.
