Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Repatriation) . - I move-

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

I have not the slightest idea of taking all consequent action to-day, because I am not optimist enough to believe that that will be physically possible ; but the debate on the first reading may conclude this evening early enough to permit the Minister (Senator Russell) to make his second-reading speech before we adjourn. It will be of advantage to the Senate if the Minister can make that speech early, so that -honorable senators may have longer to consider it.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - On a question of privilege.
