Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - In view of the necessity to push on with the works programme, I trust that honorable senators will not object to the suspension of the Standing Orders to enable the third reading, which usually is a' formal stage, to pass. The adoption of this course will enable the money to be made available at once.

Senator Lynch - Does the Minister want the bill to be passed now?

Senator PEARCE - Yes. Has the honorable senator any objection?

Senator Lynch - No.

SenatorPEARCE.- Then I move---

That so much of the Standing Orders be suspended as would prevent the bill from passing through its remaining stage without delay.
