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.

It is not the intention to take literal advantage of the permission sought by this motion, but to enable us to proceed so far as our time and energy will permit, without undue delay, with the consideration of the Bill. I ask the Senate to agree to the motion in order that it may not be necessary to have an adjournment between the first-reading and second-reading stages of the Bill.

Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - At what time does the Minister promise we shall rise tonight?

Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Does that not depend on the progress made?
