Refusal ofpair

Motion (fay Senator Collings) pro posed-

That the Senate do now adjourn.

SenatorMcLEAY (South Australia - Leader of the Opposition)[6.1]. - I protest against theaction of theGovernment in refusing to grant a pair to Senator Foll, who is absent on duty with the Volunteer Defence Corps. Itsaction in this respect deprives not only the important State of Queensland, hut also the party which I lead in this chamber of a vote when a division is taken. When, the Government realized that the voting on the motion which I moved concerning the wheat industry was likely tobe close it refused to grant a pair to Senator Foll, with the result that the motion instead of being carried was negatived.

Questionresorved in the affirmative.
