Mr WHITLAM (Werriwa) (Leader of the Opposition) - The- announcement that the Minister for National Development (Mr Fairbairn) has made is a direct outcome of the result of the Capricornia by-election.

Mr Chaney - I rise to order. I realise that the Leader of the Opposition will speak on this subject, but according to the rules a member of the Australian Country Party is entitled to be called, since the last speaker is a member of the Labor Party.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -In regard to the point of order raised by the honourable member for Perth, I confess that if anybody else except the Leader of the Opposition answered the call I did not notice them. Did the honourable member for Kennedy rise?

Mr Katter - I have been waiting to speak.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -I apologise to the honourable member for Kennedy. I call the honourable member for Kennedy.
