Mr REID (East Sydney) (Minister of External Affairs) . - I move -

That the House do now adjourn.

In the interests of the public, I must suggest that this debate should not become interminable. We have already been sitting here discussing this very simple proposition, regarding which every one. has made up his mind from the first, for more than a week, and I hope that, in the interests of the public, we shall endeavour to bring the debate to a termination as soon as possible. I quite admit that every honorable member has a perfect right to express his views, and no one wishes to limit that right, but I hope we shall arrive at a decision very, soon, because the present time is one of great anxiety.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
