Senator PEARCE (Western AustraliaVicePresident of the Executive Council) . - I move-

That the Senate at its rising adjourn till Tuesday, 15th March, at 3 p.m.

As honorable senators are aw.are, the bill which will be the main business during the present sittings in Melbourne, will probably not reach us until the week following the next. It will be noticed that Iam asking the Senate to meet on Tuesday instead of Wednesday, because I think it desirable that an endeavour should be made to finish the business in time to enable honorable senators to take part in the receptions to theirRoyal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of York in Sydney, to do which they will have to leave Melbourne on the 24th March.

Senator Grant - When does the Minister expect that the States Grants Bill will be before the Senate?

Senator PEARCE -I hope that it will be here on the 16th; but in any case there will be a Supply Bill to pass. We expect either the States Grants Bill or the Supply Bill to be in the Senate on the 15th.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
