Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) . - I am afraid that it would be unwise to leave the remaining business to be done to-morrow morning. The Cotton Bounty Bill alone might take up the whole of to-morrow morning. The other branch of the legislature will meet at 2.30 p.m., and it is necessary for us to deal with these bills before that hour to enable us to exchange messages to-morrow with another place.


Senator McHugh - We saved you five or six hours to-night by passing the Appropriation Bill quickly.


Senator PEARCE - I admit that; but I am afraid that we should be unable to dispose of all the bills to-morrow morning. If we are to conclude the business of the session to-morrow, it seems to me that we shall have to deal immediately with the bills now coming forward.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill (on motion by Senator Crawford) read a first time.
