Mr KILLEN - How can you apply the amendment to something when you do not have anything running in the amendment? You cannot apply the amendment to nothing.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN.Order! The amendments have been dealt with in previous clauses.

Mr KILLEN - This amendment?

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN.Order! This clause relates to the application of the amendments - not a specific amendment. I hope that the honorable gentleman will confine his remarks to the clause, as we want to get the bill through.

Mr KILLEN - With very great respect, the Chair allowed a discussion of this matter & moment or so ago.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN.Order! I do not intend to allow any more discussion of it.

Mr KILLEN - I simply trespass on the committee's time for half a second. An income of £780 a year, which is equivalent to £15 a week, is for a couple, £416 in excess of the allowable amount of £182 for each person.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN.Order! The honorable member is not addressing his remarks to the clause.

Mr KILLEN - I just despair.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN.Order! The honorable member is out of order.
