The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN - If the honorable senator disputes my ruling, there- is a proper and orderly course for him to adopt.

Senator GARDINER - I am quite prepared to accept a ruling when it has been given. But 1 ask is it a fair thing that you should tell me that you will put me in my proper place?

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN - It is not proper for any honorable senator to reflect on the Chair.

Senator GARDINER - Is it proper for the Chairman to insult me by saying that he will put me in my proper place?

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN.Probably, I should have said that I would take steps to deal with the honorable senator.

Senator GARDINER - I recognise that at this hour of the morning it would be unreasonable to continue my argument with the Chair, especially when the Chair is in such an unreasonable frame of mind. Consequently, I shall resume my seat.
