Senator COLLINGS (QUEENSLAND) - Can the Leader of the Government give to the Senate any indication of the plans which have been made for the closing of the session, and the bills to which we may be asked to give our attention? I raise the matter now in preference to registering disapproval of the adoption of rush methods at the end of the session. I am particularly anxious to avoid those, and every effort to prevent the usual indecent haste will be made by the Opposition.

Senator Sir GEORGE PEARCE - If the honorable senator will examine the notice paper of the Senate and of the House of Representatives, he will see what bills have been listed for consideration. Whether all of them will be carried to finality, 1" am not at the moment able to say. The Government does not intend to rush matters. The Senate agreed, without opposition, to meet in the morning during this week in order to facilitate the disposal of business. I should imagine that the legislation awaiting consideration will probably be concluded towards the end of next week.
