Motion (by Senator Sir George Pearce) - by leave - agreed to -

That the Address-in-Reply to His Excellency the Governor-General's Opening Speech be presented to His Excellency by the President and such senators as may desire to accompany him.

The PRESIDENT (Senator the Hon. P. J. Lynch). - I have ascertained that His Excellency the Governor-General will be pleased to receive the AddressinReply to his opening Speech at Government House at 11 a.m. to-morrow. I invite as many honorable senators as can make it convenient to do so, to accompany me on that occasion.

Senator Collings - I desire to make a personal explanation. As I have two important meetings to attend to-morrow morning, and shall be unable to accompany you, sir, when the Address-in-Reply is presented to His Excellency, I trust that the Assistant Minister (Senator Brennan) will not accuse me of further disloyalty.
