Mr O'MALLEY (Darwin) - I object to this motion, because it is well known that on Fridays many members leave Melbourne, so that any one who has private business on the notice-paper has no opportunity to get it discussed. I think that, as in the Senate,

Wednesday afternoons should be set apart for the discussion of private members' business.

Mr Conroy - Will the motion, if passed, compel us to sit on Fridays ?

Mr Deakin - No; it merely determines the order of business on Fridays should the House be sitting.

Mr Conroy - I hope that the House will not sit more than three days a week.
