Mr SPEAKER - Notices of motion have been given in the interests of two honorable members, and it is conceivable that a difficulty might arise if similar notices were given in the interests of any larger number, because, during the discussion of the first motion, it might be found impossible to move the substitution of the name of a candidate proposed in one of the other motions, on the ground that such an amendment would anticipate the discussion of a. subsequent motion. I fancy that it will be found convenient - though I am not giving a ruling to the effect that this is necessary - to follow the procedure of last year, when I think it was moved that a ballot be taken, though the talcing of a ballot .became unnecessary^ because only two names were submitted. I suggest that the matter be looked into before the motions are brought on, so that some agreement may be arrived at.
