The PRESIDENT - I should like to say a word in reference to the vote which I am about to give. I strongly opposed the original motion for reasons which were stated by several honorable senators. I did not think that we had anything to do with the matter ; that we understood what Home Rule for Ireland meant ; or that we could even arrive at a definite conclusion as to what the result of it would be. But still, the motion having been passed, I look upon this motion as a consequential proposition altogether. Having passed the resolution submitted by Senator Dawson, this is merely a piece of machinery to give effect to it. Therefore I shall vote for it.

Amendment agreed to.
