Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) (Minister of Defence) . - I move -

That the Senate do now adjourn.

Senator Guthrie - What are the reasons ?

Senator MILLEN - Honorable senators will understand, in spite of these signs of good-natured levity, that- I am pursuing the only course I can pursue, having regard to the position which the Senate has invariably taken up in these circumstances.

Senator Lt Colonel O'Loghlin - Not invariably.

Senator MILLEN - The Senate at its last meeting adjourned in view of the position of the Government being challenged. The motion which constituted that challenge has not yet been determined, and, therefore, I now move the adjournment of the Senate.
