Mr McCAY (Corinella) (Minister of Defence) . - Our usual time for adjourning now, except on Tuesday, is 11 o'clock. I think we should be able soon to get a definite expression of opinion on this Bill from the House.

Mr Conroy - It is an important Bill, appropriating a large sum.

Mr McCAY - We desire to get to a division on the second reading ot the Bill early to-morrow evening. As it is rather hard to expect an honorable member, with the brevity which distinguishes my honorable friend opposite, to speak at this hour, I have no objection to an adjournment ; but I wish it to be understood that the Government, although its members may have different views about the Bill, nevertheless desires that the opinion of the House may be speedily ascertained.

Debate (on motion by Mr. Spence) adjourned.

House adjourned at 10.47 P-m-
