Mr SCULLIN (Yarra) (Prime Minister) . - The order of business will depend on whether we receive the Wheat Bounty Bill from another place. If we can complete that legislation, the House will rise to-day.

Mr Gullett - If not, will the House meet on Tuesday or Wednesday?

Mr Maxwell - Could we meet on Saturday?

Mr SCULLIN - It all depends. The Government will try to meet the convenience of honorable members as much as possible. We shall see how the position develops during the day.

The Government has received an official report from Sydney that so far as the shipping trouble is concerned, the position is unchanged. There is a report of a resolution which was carried at a meeting during the day to call on the seamen as they come into the porta to give 24 hours' notice to the ship-owners, but the Government does not know if it is to be acted on. So far as the actual position is concerned, the report is that it is unchanged.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

House adjourned at 12.5 a.m. (Friday).
