Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Scholes (CORIO, VICTORIA) - Order! I think I should draw the attention of the honourable member to the fact that this is an extremely narrow measure and he cannot enter into a general debate on the whole of the egg industry, otherwise we could go on all night on eggs and honey. This measure seeks to alter certain definitions in the Act to metric terms. I ask the honourable gentleman not to proceed for too long along the line he is taking although he may make passing references.

Mr KERIN - Thank you. I am afraid that you have completely ruined most of my speech because of your interpretation. But you would appreciate, Mr Deputy Speaker, that I felt that my day had finally come. Given your ruling I really do think that there is very little I can say with respect to these Bills, if you, Sir, are to apply your ruling strictly. 1 will seek an opportunity at a later date to incorporate during an adjournment debate some of the comments I would like to see in the record.
