Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! I am sorry to have to interrupt the honourable member again but I must remind him that the purpose of this Bill is a limited one. I have allowed the honourable member a certain latitude so that he could express his remarks in relation to previous speeches but this is a bounty Bill in relation to tractors.

Mr TURNBULL - If I cannot go on, let me say that the real point is that the honourable member for Dawson warned the Government of the consequences that would flow from being a guarantor for large quantities of wheat that cannot be sold. That is what he said and it is in Hansard. I would not have entered into a debate on wheat unless Opposition members had raised matters concerning primary industry and referred to the need to do something for the primary producer, with which I am in accord in every way. Surely the Government must be given credit where credit is due. Opposition members talk about these things and pass over matters that have nothing to do with the subject. I believe they were also, in an inexcusable way, getting away from the subject matter of the Bill.
