Mr CHARLTON (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I find, on looking at the notice-paper, that the first six items have still to be dealt with, and in addition there is the Old-age and Invalid Pensions Bill, a very important measure, and additional Estimates. It will be very difficult to get through this programme to-day, and I suggest that the Prime Minister adjourn at train time until Monday, so thatwe might complete the business on that day. Failing that, and as the Old-age and Invalid Pensions Bill has not yet been introduced,and as it is necessary that honorable members should give an expression of opinion as to what the amount of the pension should be, an early place should bo found for the Bill in to-day's proceedings. What action does the Prime Minister intend to take in this matter?
