Senator KENNELLY (Victoria) - by leave - I am delighted that the Leader of the Government (Senator Paltridge) has made the statement we have just heard. I ask the honorable gentleman, with great respect, could he consult his colleagues in another place to determine whether it is possible for us to deal first with the Bills - such as the Bills relating to dairy produce, and others - on which we will not spend a long time in discussion? T think the Minister knows the Bills to which I refer. In this way we may take a reasonable time to discuss the very important Bills that are to come before the Senate.

Senator PALTRIDGE - 1 can assure the honorable senator that the position of the Senate in respect to its own programme is constantly kept before the Leader of the Government in another place. As I leave the Senate this afternoon my first task will be to see that the business comes forward in an even flow, and possibly in the manner suggested by the honorable senator. I quite understand his point and I assure him that I put it earlier this morning. I move -

That the Senate, al its rising, adjourn till 10 a.m. tomorrow.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
