Senator KEEFFE (Queensland) - Without going into great detail on the relevant clauses of the Bill, as I would have had to do had I spoken at the Committee stage, I feel that the references made by the Minister for Works (Senator Wright) cannot be allowed to go unchallenged. He made glowing references--

Senator Wright - Mr Acting Deputy President, I raise a point of order.

Senator KEEFFE - Oh, for God's sake.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT (Senator Davidson) - A point of order has been raised. Senator Wright, can you identify the point of order?

Senator Wright - Yes. The Bill has been through the second reading and the Committee stages. I submit that any debate at the third reading stage must be confined to matters that are completely relevant to the terms of the Bill.

Senator KEEFFE - Mr Acting Deputy President, may I speak to the point of order?
