Mr SPEAKER - Order! I do not have sufficient knowledge of what the honourable member is talking about to be able to say whether it comes under this Bill or not, bat I remind him that we are debating the Bankruptcy Bill. It is concerned with bankruptcy, and if the Reconstruction Board about which he has been talking at length is an authority to give financial assistance, he is out of order.

Mr GRASSBY - Mr Speaker,I am grateful for your guidance. I am about to sum up all the things I have said to the Attorney-General. 1 hope he will reply, because they are interlocking matters. I know it is late, but they are interlocking matters.

Mr King - I think the honourable member had better finish. That is the best way out.

Mr GRASSBY - I will do that. I hope the honourable member will support me in my plea on behalf of a lot of people in trouble. First of all 1 would like an answer to my query in the first instance about the Rural Reconstruction Board and the effect of this Bill on it, and secondly about the plea and the request that has been made by the State of New South Wales. I hope the Attorney-General will convey that request to the Prime Minister. Thank you, Mr Speaker, for your guidance and 1 am grateful to the House for its forebearance.
