Mr McCOLL - The Prime Minister knows the interest which the matter is exciting throughout the northern district, and, in fact, throughout the whole of Victoria, and some of the other States as well. If Ministers desire that honorable members shall give way, it is only fair that they should meet them in the way I have suggested I have no wish to take up time or to do anything discourteous or disrespectful to Ministers or members of the House. At the same time, I think it is fair that private members, who have these rights and have important motions under their control for which thev are responsible to their constituents, should be given every opportunity to carry them through. I ask the Prime Minister to give me time when the House meets to-morrow simply to take a vote on the motion.
