Senator MILLEN (Minister of Defence) . - I move -

That the Senate, at its rising, adjourn until Wednesday, 29th April.

With a knowledge ofwhat is transpiring elsewhere, honorable senators will understand the reason for taking this step, which is entirely usual under the circumstances. I am not wedded to the date mentioned in the motion. I see no particular virtue in the 29th, or any other date in the calendar month; but I bring this proposal forward as being the usual, and certainly an extremely moderate, adjournment. At the same time, I am entirely in the hands of the Senate.
