Mr PAGE (Maranoa) - I should like the Prime Minister to extend the adjournment to a month.

Mr Barton - No.

Mr PAGE - The proposal of the right honorable gentleman is very well for honorable members who reside in Melbourne, but I think that those who come from distant States should be given an opportunity to visit their homes. I shall have to remain in this city till the House re-assembles.

Mr Watson - Come upon the tour of inspection.

Mr PAGE - No. I intend to see the eligible capital sites at my own expense when the weather breaks. I have been living in the bush for twenty odd years, and have previously had no chance of enjoying the advantages of city life. Accordingly, I intend to remain here just as long as my constituents will allow me. At the same time I think that the Prime Minister might reasonably grant an adjournment for the additional week which is asked for.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
