Mr DEAKIN (Ballarat) (AttorneyGeneral) . - I move -

That the House at its rising adjourn until eleven o'clock to-morrow.

By meeting at the earlier hour it is hoped we may deal with the remaining schedules of the Post and Telegraph Bates Bill, and thus enable honorable members, who so desire, to return to their homes by the afternoon train. According to present appearances we shall have the Customs Tariff Bill returned from the Senate by the close of this week, for consideration when the House meets next week; and, having regard to the serious issue that lies before us, it is desirable that the consideration of the Post and TelegraphRates Bill should be completed before we adjourn to-morrow.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
