In his speech, Bishop supported the supremacy of the House of Representatives over the Senate. He said: “I hold to the view that the party or parties that control a majority on the floor of the House should govern in both places. The same principle should have applied for the last six years and the same principle should apply again when we again occupy the Treasury benches.”
