Mr LYONS (Wilmot) (Prime Minister and Treasurer) . - I move -

That the House, at its rising, adjourn until 11 a.m to-morrow.

The object is to complete the programme of the Government by Thursday, and incidentally to avoid the necessity for allnight or very late sittings.


Mr Beasley - What programme is contemplated ?


Mr LYONS - The first business will be the resumption of the debate on the motion for the second reading of the War Service Homes Bill, to be followed by the debate on the motion for the second reading of the Australian Broadcasting Commission Bill. Then, there will be the resolutions under the Financial Agreements Enforcement Act.


Mr Scullin - When will they be brought forward?


Mr LYONS - To-morrow. I have promised honorable members the opportunity for a further discussion of the question of unemployment. I suggest that the whole of the Government business be disposed of to-morrow, and that Thursday be devoted to that debate. A conference of the different State Governments on the subject is to be held, and the opportunity will be afforded to this

House to make suggestions for its consideration.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
