Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I would ask the Prime Minister to agree to adjourn until half-past 2 o'clock tomorrow. He is not facilitating business by requiring honorable members to sit for such long hours.


Mr Deakin - I wish, if possible, to avoid sitting late, and am afraid that if we adjourn until half-past 2 o'clock tomorrow we shall have to sit late.


Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - We were told that we should not be required to sit late to-night.


Mr Deakin - It is not our fault that we are late.


Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Honorable members on this side have been holding their tongues in order to allow the business to proceed, but we did not understand that the Minister would attempt to carry the Bill so far as he has done. The Government will not get any " forrarder " by going on in this way - but they may please themselves.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
