Mr McCOLL (Echuca) .- I do not think that I need make any apology for the motion which I am about to move, because it affects matters of extreme importance. I wish, however, to depart to a slight extent from the terms of the notice appearing on the business paper. That notice reads as follows: -

That this House instruct the Ministry to so arrange the business for this session that the general elections can be held on a date not later than the 15th day of November next.

As exception may be taken to the terms of a motion so worded, and I have no desire to be considered peremptory and offensive, I wish to move in .substitution -

That, in the opinion of this House, the Ministry should so arrange the business for this session that the general elections can be held on a date not later than the 15th day of November next.
