Bill received from the House of Representatives, and (on motion by Senator E. D. Millen) read a first time.

Suspension of Standing Orders.

Senator E.D. MILLEN (New South

Wales - Minister for Repatriation') [3.9]. - I move -

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

I do not propose to take full advantage of the motion if it should be agreed to, but, should the opportunity present itself to-night, Ishould like to be in a position to make my second-reading speech explanatory of the measure, thus leaving honorable senators, between this and the resumption of business to-morrow, in a better position to proceed with it.
