Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - I move -

That the Senate do now adjourn.

I have submitted the motion for the special adjournment until Wednesday next in order that the Governor-General may have time to sign Acts already passed, and to issue a proclamation formally proroguing Parliament. I have to thank honorable senators for the manner in which they have assisted the Government to carry out the work of the country. Although we have had some very strenuous encounters with both the Opposition and members of our own party, I believe that no illfeeling remains. Every one conscientiously did his duty, and although it may have appeared sometimes to be the case, I believe there was no attempt during the session to " stone-wall !J or to unduly delay business. I again thank honorable senators for the assistance they have given. I am informed that provision has been made upstairs for refreshments to be served. I hope that honorable senators will enjoy them, and that we shall all meet in the test of temper and with the kindliest feelings of friendship some time next year.
