Senator DE LARGIE (Western Australia) . - I am very pleased to accommodate my honorable friend on the other side. The petition is from 176 persons, being residents of the State of Western Australia. Is that perfectly clear ?

Senator Fraser - Yes, but what is the purport ?

Senator DE LARGIE - The petitioners pray that the Senate will cause copies of Address- Petitions to their Majesties King George V. and Queen Mary on the subject of the resources and inducements of Australia, which bore the signatures of thousands of representative citizens, and copies of the Royal replies thereto, to be laid on the table of the Senate, and to be sent to the citizen deputed by the said petitioners. I move -

That the petition be read.

Senator Givens - What does all that mean?

Senator Millen - Am I entitled to speak, sir?
