Senator NEEDHAM (Western Australia) . - Why should the Senate meet at 11 o'clock to-morrow?

Senator Pearce - To enable us to finish the business.

Senator NEEDHAM - The noticepaper has upon it only the Federal Aid Roads Bill, and that which has just been received from the House of Representatives.

Senator Pearce - We shall also have to consider the Cotton Bounty Bill and the Estimates.

Senator NEEDHAM - The passage of this motion will not prevent an all-night sitting. Honorable senators ought to have been advised earlier that they were to be called together at 11 a.m. to-morrow. If another place were waiting for us to complete certain measures I could understand the necessity for an earlier meeting than usual.

Senator Pearce - The other House met at 11 o'clock this morning, and will meet at the same hour tomorrow morning.

Senator NEEDHAM - If we met at the usual hour to-morrow afternoon we could keep pace with the other House, and dispose of all the business that is sent to us. I shall not agree to the motion.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
