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

That the Senate do now adjourn,

I have to state that the business tomorrow will be the second reading of the War Precautions Bill, which was distributed to-day. I have given notice of motion for the suspension of the Standing Orders to-morrow so as to put the Bill through. It is fairly urgently required. I hope to have the Defence Bill ready and to move the first reading, but I do not intend to ask the Senate to put it through to-morrow. I hope, also, that we shall have the Estimates up from another place.
