Senator MILLEN - As a matter of information, sir, mayI ask would that technically keep formal business on one side?

The PRESIDENT - No ; because the Standing Orders provide that, even when the Ad dress-in -Reply, which takes precedence of all other business, is under consideration, the Senate may deal with formal matters which necessarily do not give rise to any debate. If Senator McGregor so desires, he is at liberty now to go on with the business for which he obtained the suspension of the Standing Orders.
