The PRESIDENT - Regarding what Senator Millen has said, I am well aware that the temperature of the chamber was very cold to-day. During the dinner adjournment I made some inquiries, and found that the machinery which has been installed down below for the transmission of hot air to the two chambers is on the other side of the building. The consequence is that the other House gets the first supply, and what is to spare is driven along to the Senate chamber by a fan. . Apparently the machinery is not sufficiently powerful. I will see that representations are made to the Home Affairs Department, and, if possible, some alterations effected.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
