Mr GORTON -I did notice the oddity referred to and took the opportunity to And out what the dictionary definition of joss' was because I was no more sure of what it was than apparently the Leader of the Opposition was. But it turns out to mean 'a Chinese figure of a deity or an idol'. I can assure the House and the Leader of the Opposition that 1 do not regard Mr Hawke as a Chinese figure of a deity or an idol. It may be that he was referring to the secondary meaning which is a thin cylinder or stick of fragrant tinder mixed with clay'. I do not know which of them he was referring to, but 1. can assure him that if he meant the first definition he was incorrect; if he meant the second, he was rather insulting Mr Hawke.
