Mr WENTWORTH (Mackellar) - Under the provisions of standing order 399, I move:

That so much of the Standing Orders and Sessional Orders be suspended as would prevent the immediate recommittal of the Bill.

Mr Speaker,I have very good reasons for moving this motion. I think that they can be summarised by the remarks made by my friend the honourable member for Moreton. The honourable member for Moreton-

Mr Uren - I raise a point of order, Mr Speaker. I moved the report be adopted before the motion for the suspension of Standing Orders was moved by the honourable member.

Mr Wentworth - Mr Speaker, I draw your attention to standing order 236, which reads:

On report from the committee or on the motion for the adoption of the report the bill may, on motion by any Member, be recommitted . . .

I am entirely and completely in accordance with Standing Orders.
