Sir EDMUND BARTON (HunterMinister for External Affairs) - In reply. I shall, of course, give consideration to a suggestion made by the right honorable gentleman in so friendly a manner; but, having compared the provisional standing orders with those passed by the Standing Orders Committee, I must say that the points of difference do not seem so many or so great as to justify us at the present stage in occupying time by their discussion, and a conversation which I had on thesubject with Mr. Speaker this morning left me with no other impression.


Mr Reid - Were the standing orders by which we are now governed passed by the House ?


Sir EDMUND BARTON - Yes.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
