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

That so much of the Standing and Sessional Orders bo suspended as would prevent the Bill being passed through its remaining stages, without delay.

In submitting this motion, I may say that the reason why this Bill should be passed as soon as possible is that the Government are desirous of possessing additional powers, which have been found to be necessary as the result of inquiries made. I trust, therefore, that there will be. no objection to the motion.

Senator Bakhap - The necessity for it has been disclosed by the insufficiency of the Bill which we passed a little time ago.

Senator PEARCE - That is so.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
