Mr. REID(East Sydney - Minister of

External Affairs). - I move -

That the House do now adjourn.

I should like to make a short statement to honorable members with regard to the business with which we propose to deal during the next two or three sitting days. I propose to-morrow to go on with the Kalgoorlie to Port Augusta Railway Survey Bill, and I hope we shall dispose of that measure without much difficulty, because the matter was fully threshed out on a previous occasion. My honorable colleague, the Treasurer, intends to deliver his Budget speech on Tuesday, and it is proposed that there shall be the usual adjournment of the debate, to enable 'honorable members to consider the Treasurer's statement and the financial position generally. After that, we propose to afford the honorable member for Eden-Monaro an opportunity to proceed with the Manufactures Encouragement Bill.
