Mr JAMES (Hunter) - Mr Deputy Speaker,may I have your indulgence to raise a matter?

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Millar - The honourable member has the Chair's indulgence.

Mr JAMES - Since I have been a member of this House I have endeavoured to set an example in keeping politics clean. Tonight in the Senate a disclosure was made by Senator Walsh but he was obstructed from mentioning a member's name. The person whose name he was obstructed from mentioning is Peter Johnson, the honourable member for Brisbane. His name was mentioned in connection with something of which any member of parliament should be ashamed.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! The honourable member may have abused the indulgence extended to him.

Mr JAMES - I have not, sir.


Original question resolved in the affirmative.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -The House stands adjourned until Tuesday, 9 September next, at 2.15 p.m., unless an alternative day or hour of meeting be notified by telegram or letter addressed to each member of the House.

House adjourned at 12.7 a.m. (Friday)
