Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister of Defence) . - I move -

That the Senate do now adjourn.

I regret to have to take this course, but honorable senators understand the reason. There has not been time to get copies of the Bankruptcy Bill printed for the Senate, but there are printed copies which were prepared for another place. The Billhas been withdrawn from that House, and the attendants of the Senate have the printed copies, so that every honorable senator will be able to obtain a copy to-day. Fresh copies are being printed for the use of the Senate, and will be sent to honorable senatorswith their papers.

Suggest corrections
