Senator McGREGOR (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) - If I make. the notice of motion contingent upon the suspension of standing order 278, will that meet with the wish of the Leader of the Opposition? I do not desire to .have any delay, and I wish to give as long notice as possible.


Senator Vardon - That is a question for the President to decide. the PRESIDENT. - The contention urged by Senator Millen is correct. Until standing order 278 has been suspended it is not competent for the Vice-President of the Executive Council to give notice of the motion for a call of the Senate for the date to which reference has been made. I do not think, however, that there can be any objection to notice of motion being given, contingent upon the suspension of the standing order. Contingent notices of motion may be given in connexion with any business brought before the Senate.


Senator McGregor - Then, I shall make the notice of motion contingent upon the suspension of the standing order.
