Mr SPEAKER - The only question open to discussion is the date on which the message shall be taken into consideration.

Mr McDONALD - I move-

That the words "Tuesday next " be omitted, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the word "to-morrow."

I move the amendment because I think that it is necessary that an effort should be made to finally settle this question as early as possible. The Government should endeavour to secure a compromise between the two Houses. They should think over the matter to-night, and come forward tomorrow with a new Bill definitely proposing that the seat of government shall be at or near Lyndhurst for example. That would be a compromise as between Bombala and Tumut.
