Senator MILLEN (New South WalesMinister of Defence) . - I ask the leave of the Senate to submit a motion in reference to the senators who were absent from the call of the Senate yesterday. It is a formal motion which has previously been held to be necessary in order to excuse those honorable senators who were unavoidably absent yesterday.

Leave granted.

Motion (by Senator Millen) agreed to-

That in view of the fact that Senators Bakhap and demons, who were absent from the call of the Senate, had been granted leave by the Senate, and that explanations were made on behalf of Senators Barker and Lynch, who were also absent, the said senators be excused for failure to answer such call.
