Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) (Minister of Defence) .- It has been suggested to me by Senator Gould that I should move the suspension of the sitting until half-past two.

Senator Pearce - Let Senator McGregor go on with his motion with regard to the double dissolution.

Senator MILLEN - Of course, the Senate is master of its own procedure, but as the Government propose to ask Parliament to deal only with three measures, it is not competent for me to invite the Senate to do any other business, nor can Senator McGregor reasonably expect me to assist him with regard to the motion to which reference has been made. I move -

That the sitting be suspended until 2.30 p.m. this day.
