Sir JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Navy) . - These pleasant proceedings make a break in the continuity of our sittings, and require that we should pass again two motions which, because of this happy bringingtogether of the House, have lapsed. Honorable member's will recollect that before we adjourned on Friday two proposals were brought before the House and carried, one giving leave of absence to honorable members until the calling together of the House, and the other adjourning the. House until summoned by Mr. Speaker. These now lapse, and must be re-passed to become effective. I accordingly move -

That leave of absence be given to every member of the House of Representatives from the determination of this sitting of the House to the date of its next sitting.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
