The PRESIDENT - Order I It is laid down in a standing order that no honorable senator shall read extracts from newspapers or other comments referring to debates in the Senate during the same session.

Senator McDOUGALL - Will the Government take action to see that the business is put through a little more expeditiously and that the " drivelling debaters " - so called by the public press - on the opposite side are called to time and compelled to deal with business in an expeditious manner?

Senator Millen - Mr. President, has the honorable senator, under the guise of a question, the right to refer to " drivelling " from the other side of the Chamber ? We have a standing order which ought to be complied with.
