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

That the Senate, at its rising, adjourn until Thursday next.

My reason for submitting this motion is that another place has not made the pro- gress we hoped it would make, and the measures with which we wish, to deal before the Senate adjourns have not reached us. I hope they will come up next week. There are two or three Bills dealing with war matters that the Government desire to get through as soon as possible, and I trust, therefore, that honorable senators will pardon us for calling them together for only two days next week. It must be done in case those Bills are ready.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
