Senator THOMPSON (Queensland) . - I should like to know whether the resolution to be submitted in another place will provide that the quorum shall be one member of the House of Representatives and three senators.

Senator Pearce - It will not.

Senator THOMPSON - I ask this, because Senator Pearce was not quite correct in saying that only one senator could go to Queensland. As a matter of fact, only one member of the House of Representatives is available to make the trip.

Senator Pearce - The motion provides that the quorum shall consist of one member of the Senate sitting with three others members of the committee.

Senator THOMPSON - That overcomes the difficulty to which I have drawn attention.

Question resolved in the affrmative
