Mr CONROY (Werriwa) - I trust that the Minister representing the Prime Minister will see his way clear to consent to an adjournment over the holidays to-morrow afternoon, in accordance with the usual custom. The Queensland members naturally complain of the length of the session, but so do we all. I shall always feel that I have a serious ground for complaint, considering that our remuneration was fixed at a rate sufficient for a session lasting a few months, whereas we have been sitting for fourteen months. I supposed that I should be required to sit for three or four months during the first session.

Mr Glynn - And instead of that the honorable and learned member has been standing nearly all the time !

Mr CONROY - I have not the slightest doubt that there will be plenty of time for dealing with the Electoral Bill when we return after the Coronation. It is so important a measure that there should be a full attendance of honorable members when it is dealt with, and it is certain that there will not be a full attendance if the House sits on Monday.
