Senator W RUSSELL (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) . - I join with others in asking Senator Lynch to withdraw the motion. Enough has been said to prevent Senator St. Ledger, or any other honorable senator, from making a similar mistake in the future. I only wish to suggest forgetfulness in this matter. We all know that sometimes there is a kind of giddiness in our heads. I experience it myself occasionally, but not through strong drink. In all sincerity I ask Senator Lynch, especially in view of the fact that he is a member of the Labour party, who possess a majority in this Parliament, to be merciful, and to withdraw the motion.

Suggest corrections
