Senator PEARCE (Western AustraliaMinister of Defence) . - The Government have become impressed with, the necessity of proceeding with the Conciliation and Arbitration Bill as rapidly as possible. We do not wish to inconvenience anybody. I feel sure that Senator Millen will be in a position to proceed with the Bill to-morrow. The Vice-Presidentof the Executive Council will not be present ; but, before we get into Committee, he will probably be able to reply to any criticisms which may require an answer. I can assure the Senate that certain facts have come under our notice which have made it necessary that this Bill should be pressed forward.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
