Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for Defence) (3:18 AM) . - I thank honorable senators generally for the consideration they have extended tothe Government in connexion with the, heavy ordeal through which we have passed in dealing with the Tariff schedule. I specially appreciate the consideration that has been shown to me in the knowledge that I have been placed in a rather awkward position owing to the absence of my honorable colleagues, Senator Millen and Senator Russell, both of whom are sick at the present time. I gratefully acknowledge this consideration, not only by those who usually support the Government, but also by the Leader of the Opposition (Senator Gardiner).
