Mr GILES (Angas) - I want to make it quite plain that the negotiations that go on between the Deputy Leader of the Opposition and the Leader of the House bears no relation to the speaker's list that is handed from one Whip's office to the other. On this occasion the Government Whip's office took off the tail end of the speakers' list as handed in by me to that office. For that reason I, who was the next speaker on this side, did not rise. I want to make quite clear that if I had spoken obviously the debate would have been gagged. I want to make that plain out of deference to my friends on the same side in the Opposition.
