Mr FISHER (Wide Bay) (Prime Minister and Treasurer) . - In moving -

That the House do now adjourn,

I wish to intimate to honorable members that the second reading of the Bills with which we have just dealt will be the first business on Wednesday next.

Mr Kelly - Why not " gag " them through ?

Mr FISHER - Only incidental business will be allowed to intervene, and the third reading of the measures will be fixed for a fortnight from to-day. Honorable members will thus have an ample opportunity to study their provisions.

Mr Joseph Cook - Does the Prime Minister propose to go straight on with them on Wednesday?

Mr FISHER - If the right honorable gentleman desires an adjournment of the debate after the Attorney-General has delivered his speech, in moving the second reading of the Bills, we will consent to an adjournment to the following day.
