Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister of Defence) . - In moving

That the Senate do now adjourn, I wish to intimate that the VicePresident of the Executive Council has given notice of motion for leave to introduce a Bill relating to bankruptcy, which motion will come on to-morrow. I propose, therefore, to ask the Senate to meet to-morrow, so that we may take the first reading. I do not think this will entail much hardship, as honorable senators have not been able to get away to the other States. It will get us over the formal stage, and on Wednesday the honorable senator will be able to move the second reading. I understand that a money Bill to make the grant to Belgium will also come up from the other House on Wednesday.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
