Senator PEARCE (Western AustraliaMinister for Defence) (Minister for Defence) . - I understand that three members of the Hansard Staff are sick. It is probable that a protracted sitting may occur in another place, in view of the desire of the Government to complete consideration of the Tariff to-night. In order that the strain upon the Hansard Staff may be reduced as much as possible, honorable senators have been consulted and are agreed that it is desirable that the Senate should not sit after dinner. I therefore move -

That the Senate do now adjourn.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
