Mr WHITLAM (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I will not continue. With respect, Mr Speaker, I disagree with you but I do not propose to test your ruling. The honourable member for Bradfield, in the first and most lucid of his interventions, said that the usual practice was for the Leader of the Opposition to move the adjournment of the Budget debate. The Leader of the Opposition did that, but he believed that he was entitled under a Standing Order amended as recently as April this year to speak on another motion. But, Sir, you are not of that opinion.

Mr SPEAKER -I think you will find I am right.

Mr WHITLAM - Without prejudice I will accept your opinion on this occasion.

Mr SPEAKER - Thank you.
