Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - I move-

That so much of the Standing and Sessional Orders be suspended as would prevent the bill being passed through all its stages without delay.

My object in submitting this motion is to place myself in a position, so soon as the formal stage of the first reading of the bill has been passed, to move the second reading of the measure and make a speech thereon. No objection will be offered to the debate then being adjourned. If that course is desired by any honorable senator, his right to move in that direction will not be in any way curtailed. In view of the small amount of business on our notice-paper, it is considered desirable to advance the bill to the stage that I have indicated. It is not intended to curtail the debate in any way.
