Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - I suggest to the Vice-President of the Executive Council that he should alter the date for which the call of the Senate is to lie fixed. I think I am correct in saying that it has been our practice that calls of the Senate should take place early in the sitting. There is just a possibility that if the call be fixed for Tuesday next, some honorable senators, by reason of accidents such as occasionally happen, may be prevented from arriving in time. It would make no difference to the ultimate passage of the Bills in question if the call were fixed for Thursday instead of Tuesday. I suggest to the Minister that he should try to meet what appear to be the necessities of the case by amending his motion.
