Mr DEAKIN (Ballarat) (AttorneyGeneral) . - Before the business of the day is called upon, I desire to inform honorable members, that in the hope of disposing of the Electoral Bill, and a little more business, tomorrow night, we do not propose to ask the House to sit on Friday. The Government intend to set that day apart for the consideration of the requests which we expect to receive from the Senate in regard to the Customs and Excise Tariff Bills.

Mr Batchelor - Do the Government propose to adjourn on Thursday in time to enable honorable members from other States to catch their trains?

Mr DEAKIN - I do not apprehend so, unless we make much more rapid progress with the Electoral Bill than we have been doing.
