Mr REID (East Sydney) .- I recognise the wisdom of granting the Government these supplies at the earliest possible moment, but I hope this will not be taken as a precedent, because it is serious to allow appropriations to go through on the suspension of the Standing Orders. Hqwever, these public works are of great urgency, and I think we may safely depart from the usual procedure.
