Senator NEEDHAM (Western Australia) . - I realize the necessity for the motion, but I thought it as well to have an explanation from the Leader of the Senate (Senator Pearce) as to why we should be asked to sacrifice private members' business.

Senator Pearce - This motion will not interfere with private business.

Senator NEEDHAM - It is intended, as the Minister has stated, to facilitate the passage of certain Government measures so as to terminate the session this week. As I understand that many honorable senators have already made their arrangements, I do not propose to delay the motion. I presume that we shall not only end the sittings of the Commonwealth Parliament in Melbourne this week, but also that we shall give up our tenure of these premises at an early date.
