Mr BRUCE (Flinders) (Prime Min ister, and Minister for External Affairs) .- I move-

That Government business shall take precedence of General Business to-morrow.

As honorable members are aware, tomorrow is private members' day, but as we are now in the middle of the budget discussion and it is proposed to go straight ahead with the estimates, the Government thinks that the discussion should not be interrupted by the intervention of private business. Furthermore, as this debate provides full opportunity to honorable members to discuss any and all matters upon which they may wish to speak, the need for setting aside a day for private members' business is not quite the same this week as it would be in ordinary circumstances.
