Senator GIVENS (Queensland) .- This alteration is to meet the case where, by reason of a debate having been interrupted by a suspension of the sitting, the business under discussion has dropped from the notice-paper. The new standing order will do away with the necessity of interrupting a debate in order that the business under consideration may be placed for a future occasion.

Senator Millen - Does it drop off absolutely now.?

Senator GIVENS - Yes. If an honorable senator has possession of the floor and will not sit down so that an order may be made, the business drops off the . notice-paper. The new standing order will get over that difficulty and keep the business on the notice-paper. I move -

That the amendment be agreed to.

Motion agreed to.

Standing order 99 -

Notice of question shall be given by a senator delivering the same at the table, fairly written, signed by himself, and showing the day proposed for asking such question.

Amendments.- After "written" insert "printed or typed"; after "question" last occurring, insert " or such notice may be given by one senator on behalf of another."
