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

That the House do now adjourn.

There is no other measure upon the business paper with which we can proceed this afternoon, and, under the circumstances, it is necessary for me to submit this motion, although I regret that we cannot employ the hours of an ordinary sitting which still remain to' us upon the consideration of the measure that we shall receive from the Senate to-morrow. I again invite honorable members to make themselves familiar with that measure by consulting the proceedings in which the proposals that will be brought before us in regard to the Customs Tariff Bill are to be found, so that when the message is presented we may be able to proceed at once with its consideration. In this connexion it is very important that there shall be no more delay than is absolutely essential; and if honorable members will do the Government the favour of consulting those proceedings, I think that they will be fairly equipped for dealing with the Bill when it comes before us to-morrow afternoon.
