Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - I am prepared to do whatever will suit the convenience of honorable senators next week. When the call is made, I propose, if the Senate is agreeable, to- postpone the call, so that it may apply to Wednesday, if that can be done, in order to give every honorable senator an opportunity of responding to the call, and also of voting on the third reading of the constitutional measures in question. The Leader of the Opposition also asked earlier in the day for an indication, of the probable date of the prorogation of Parliament. I had a consultation with the Acting Prime Minister, who said that, as far as he could see, the possibility was that we should be able to conclude the work of the session by this day fortnight. He added that there was a possibility of concluding the session earlier, but that that would depend entirely upon honorable members themselves. If we can finish before this day fortnight, the Government, will be very well satisfied.
