The PRESIDENT - Before putting notice of motion No. 3 as formal busi ness, I wish to point out what seems to me a difficulty. I believe that we have already received a report that the Select Committee do not intend to proceed further with the business referred to them.

Senator McGregor - That report has not been dealt with, sir, and circumstances might arisewhich would make it necessary for the Committee to proceed.

The PRESIDENT - Very well.

Motions (by Senator McGregor) agreed to -

That a message be sent to the House of Representatives requesting the House to give leave to the Honorable William Henry Kelly to attend and be examined by the Select Committee of the Senate on Mr. Teesdale Smith's contract, transcontinental railway.

That so much of the Standing Orders be suspended as would prevent the Select Committee on Mr. Teesdale Smith's contract - transcontinental railway - sitting during the sittings of the Senate.
