Mr GARLAND (Curtin) - Mr Chairman,the honourable member for Wilmot (Mr Duthie) made-

Motion (by .Mr Hansen) proposed:

That the question be now put.

The CHAIRMAN (Mr Scholes - The question is 'That the question be now put'. Those of that opinion say aye; to the contrary no. I think the ayes have it.

Mr Malcolm Fraser - The noes have it.

The CHAIRMAN - Is a division required?

Mr Malcolm Fraser - Yes.

The CHAIRMAN - Ring the bells. (The bells being rung) -

Mr Malcolm Fraser - Mr Chairman, the Leader of the House came to a firm agreement three-quarters of an hour ago and he has just broken it.

Mr Daly - That is not right. That is false.

The CHAIRMAN - Order!

Mr Malcolm Fraser - Mr Chairman, he came to a firm agreement with the Deputy Leader of the Opposition.

Mr Daly - I will just tell the honourable member for Wannon that he has lied to the House.

Mr McVeigh - I rise to order.

The CHAIRMAN - Order! I would suggest to the honourable member that he should observe the procedures of the House when taking a point of order during a division.

Mr Malcolm Fraser - Mr Chairman, I ask the Leader of the House to withdraw the remark he made, which was unparliamentary.

Mr McVeigh -I rise to order, Mr Chairman. Last night in this chamber the Minister for Services and Property gave an assurance that each and every honourable member who wished to speak on this Bill-

The CHAIRMAN - Order! There is no substance in the point of order. Arrangements which are made or assurances which are given by parties are not the subject of the Standing Orders and only under the Standing Orders are honourable members entitled to take points of order.

Mr Daly - The honourable member for Wannon would not accept the offer. That appears in Hansard. He said it was not good enough. He would not accept it. The honourable member for Darling Downs should read his copy of the Hansard record.

The CHAIRMAN - Order! The question is That the question be now put'.
