Mr FORDE (Capricornia) . - I move -

That so much of thu Standing Orders be suspended as would prevent the. debate being continued until a quarter-past six o'clock p.m.

At the request of a number of honorable members who desire to speak on this important question, I approached the Government to ascertain whether it would be prepared to allow the debate to continue until 6.15 p.m. My proposal was agreed to on the understanding that the

Opposition would agree to Government business being proceeded with at 8 o'clock to-night.

Mr McEwen - I would like to indicate that in consideration of the terms mentioned by the Deputy .Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Forde), the Government is willing to support the motion.

Motion agreed to.
