Mr MAKIN (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - The sessional orders pro vide that this House shall ordinarily meet on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, That arrangement prevents South Australian members from reaching their homes before Sunday morning, and they have to leave again for Canberra on Monday afternoon. Tasmanian members are unable to catch the boat to their own State, because it leaves Melbourne on Friday afternoon. Will the Prime Minister, therefore, consider the advisability of altering the sitting days to Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, in order to convenience the honorable members from the more distant States?
