Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) . - In connexion with the' statement made by the Vice-President of the Executive Council, I would suggest that he should to-morrow give notice that the Senate will sit on Tuesdays in future. Every honorable senator must recognise that the business will become congested towards the end of the session, particularly if the Government are in anything like a hurry to get through. It is as well, therefore, that we should take time by the forelock, and commence with Tuesday sittings next week. I am prepared to suffer the inconvenience of coming over from New South Wales a day sooner than we have been asked to do so far this session. I think we should commence with Tuesday sittings next week.

Senator Keating - That means that some honorable senators will have to stay in Melbourne over the end of this week.

Senator GARDINER - I am sorry to hear that. I hope the Government will consider the suggestion, although Senator Keating's interjection, I confess, has somewhat altered my view.
