Mr BATCHELOR (Boothby) .- I move -

That the honorable member for Kennedy (Mr. Charles McDonald) be appointed Chairman of Committees of this House.

This is not a new House, and as honorable members are therefore well acquainted with each other, it is not necessary to make a long speech in support of this motion. The honorable member for Kennedy has been a Temporary Chairman of Committees throughout this and the last Parliament, has had a very long membership of the Standing Orders Committee, and possesses an acquaintance with the Standing1 Orders and rules of procedure such as most of us may envy, but few of us can equal. I think that there can beno doubt of his general fitness for the position of Chairman of Committees, and hiscourteousness and impartiality are unquestioned. I therefore propose him as the most suitable member we can select as Chairman.
