Senator GUTHRIE - To sit after the trains have left?

Senator PEARCE - I hope not. The Government have no desire to sit after the departure of the trains, but that, of course, rests with honorable senators themselves. I do not wish to stifle discussion. If there is a general desire to come back next week we can do so, but it would only be to discuss the Lighthouses Bill.

Senator McDougall - It is an important measure.

Senator PEARCE - The Government do not minimize its importance, but it deals with only one phase of the question. If the three Bills can be dealt with to-day we can adjourn over next week, and when we re-assemble, the business to be dealt with will probably be the Bills relating to the amendment of the Constitution.
