Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! The honourable gentleman is not in order in raising during the adjournment debate a matter which is the subject of a continuing debate in the House.

Mr Ian Robinson (COWPER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I referred to the procedures of this House, and I am sure that

I am quite entitled to speak on such a matter in the adjournment debate. I did, of course, refer to an occurrence earlier this evening. I was saying that the honourable member for Barton obviously was so disgusted with his own Party that he left the chamber and did not vote; nor did the honourable member for Riverina (Mr Grassby).

Mr Daly - Mr Deputy Speaker, I raise a point of order. The honourable member is now trying to defend himself against the earlier ruling by the Chair. There is evidence on our side to the effect that, whilst he claimed the call, he was misleading the Parliament or falsely saying that he had risen when in fact he had never left his seat.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! There is no substance in the point of order. The Minister will resume his seat.

Mr Keogh - Mr Deputy Speaker-

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! The honourable member will resume his seat. I call the honourable member for Cowper.

Mr Ian Robinson (COWPER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The Leader of the House has just quite wilfully misled the House with his observations as to what had occurred in this chamber earlier this evening-

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! It being 11 p.m., the Chair will be resumed at 11 a.m. tomorrow. The House stands adjourned.

Mouse adjourned at 11 p.m.
