Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister of Defence) p. 36]. - I move - That the Senate do now adjourn.

In submitting the motion, I may say that the Bill covering the grant in aid to Belgium has not reached the .Senate from another place, as was anticipated. We hope to have it before us to-morrow. We are pressing forward the preparation of other Bills for presentation to the Senate. We propose that the Bankruptcy Bill, the second reading of which has just been moved- by the Vice-President of the Executive Council, shall be gone on with to-morrow, and taken in the Committee stage. In the circumstances, I ask honorable senators who wish to speak on the second reading to come prepared to do so to-morrow.
