Mr REITH (Leader of the House) (3:33 PM) —by leave—I move:

That:

(1) the House, at its rising, adjourn until Wednesday, 9 May 2001, at 2 p.m., in the Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne, unless the Speaker or, in the event of the Speaker being unavailable, the Deputy Speaker, fixes an alternative day or hour of meeting;

(2) leave of absence be given to every Member of the House of Representatives:

(a) from the determination of this sitting of the House to 9 May 2001; and

(b) from the determination of the sitting of the House on 10 May 2001 to the date of its next sitting; and

(3) standing order 100A (Notice Paper) be suspended for the sittings of the House on 9 and 10 May 2001.

The motion proposes that the House adjourn until Wednesday, 9 May in the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne, that we have leave of absence for every member and that we suspend standing order 100A. There will be a blue, I am told, and also some brochures and pamphlets on the day.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
