Mr HUGHES - If it is found that the hours now fixed for sittings of the House do not permit of satisfactory progress being made with Government business, the question of asking the House to alter the existing arrangements will be considered by the Government. In this connexion, I would invite the honorable member's attention to the reply given by me to a question by the honorable member for Wakefield yesterday. I also desire to remind the honorable member that, on Friday last, when submitting a motion to. the House that on each sitting day, unless otherwise ordered, Government business should take precedence of general business, I intimated that the Government would be prepared to allow a week to private members' business at the close of the session.
