Senator NEEDHAM (Western Australia) .- My attitude towards the suspension of the Standing and Sessional Orders is well known. I invariably oppose such motions. But the statement of the Minister indicates that there is. on this occasion, a real need for their suspension. A situation has arisen over which neither this Parliament nor the Government has had any control. Following the example of the Minister. I shall not refer to the provisions of the bill itself at this stage. In order to get over the difficult position by which the Government and Parliament is confronted, ' I shall not oppose the motion.

Question put.
