Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) .- I move-

That so much of the Standing Orders be suspended as would prevent the second reading of the bill being moved forthwith.

I take this action because of the state of the notice-paper. If the motion is agreed to, honorable senators will hear an explanation of the bill on the motion for its second reading, and will thus be in a better position to take it into consideration to-morrow. The Government has no objection to the debate being adjourned immediately the second reading has been moved.
