Senator Sir GEORGE PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for External Affairs) [3.35]. - I move -

Thatso much of the Standing Ordersbe suspended as would prevent the questions with regard to the several stages for the passage through the Senate of. all or several of the Sales Tax Bills Nos. 1 to 9 being put in one motion, at each stage, and the consideration of all or several of such bills together in committee of the whole.

As. honorable senators are aware there are ninesales tax bills and the amendment being made is exactly the same in each. It would be a waste of time to consider the nine bills separately, and the carrying of this motion will enable the nine bills to be taken as one measure.

Question resolved in the affirmative by an absolute majority of the Senators present.

Motion(by Senator SirGeorge Pearce) proposed -

That the bills be now read a first time.
