Mr DEAKIN (Ballarat) (Minister for External Affairs) . - As I mentioned last night, if a resolution on the subject to which the honorable member for Bland refers is to be arrived at, it must be arrived at at once; otherwise it will be fruitless. At all events, it is at present apposite ; and, under the circumstances, in order that there may be no interruption to the consideration of the Arbitration Bill when it has been once commenced, I have pleasure in acceding to the request of the honorable member. I move -

That the consideration of the remaining business be postponed until after the consideration of Notice of Motion No. 8.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
