That the House at its rising adjourn until 2.30 p.m. this day.

Mr Beasley - Does the Government propose to deal with the report of the Tariff Board on the tobacco industry?

Mr LYONS - That report will be placed in the hands of honorable members and the discussion on it will take place on Tuesday next. On Wednesday we shall resume the discussion on the Insurance Bill.

Mr.Riordan. - The Minister for Trade and Customs (Mr. Gullett) said that the discussion on the Tobacco Report would take place to-day.

Mr LYONS - That was intended; but the report of the Tariff Board was not ready to be placed in the hands of honorable members. We considered that it would suit their convenience better to peruse the report, and to discuss it on Tuesday next.
