Mr NIXON (Gippsland) - Mr Speaker, last Thursday, in the course of the debate on a matter of public importance relating to the scandalous method of letting contracts by the Minister for Works (Senator Cavanagh), the Minister for Labour (Mr Clyde Cameron) alleged that I had some dealings with a firm known as Allen Constructions Pty Ltd. The firm and its members are completely unknown to me and I have had no contact with them. As this allegation was reported in at least one newspaper last Friday I ask the Minister for Labour to withdraw that statement and to apologise for this typical, slanderous and gutter like allegation for which the Minister is well known.

Mr SPEAKER - Order! The language used by the honourable member is unparliamentary. He asked for leave to make a personal explanation. He has explained the situation quite fully. There is no need for the honourable member to use in this Parliament the language which he has just used.
