Mr WATSON (Bland) (Treasurer)

In view of the importance of the vote which has just been given, it is necessary that the Government should have an opportunity to ' consider its position. I therefore move -

That the House, at its rising, adjourn until Wednesday next.

Question resolved in the affirmative.


Mr. MAHONlaid upon the table the following paper : -

Precis of the claim of Mr.E. Palmer against Mr.P. L. Withers, telephone inspector, Brisbane.


Mr. WATSON(Bland- Treasurer).In moving -

That the House do now adjourn,

I think I may take the opportunity to congratulate honorable members upon the good feeling that has been displayed during the debate which has just closed. The fact that we were not able to elicit any information from honorable members opposite as to their intentions, in view of certain contingencies, is perhaps, from our point of view, rather a pity. But, nevertheless, I am sure that all honorable members have manifested an anxiety to have the debate brought to a conclusion with the least possible degree of friction, andI have pleasure on behalf of the Government in acknowledging that fact.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
