The PRESIDENT - I layon the table a report from the Standing Orders Committee, which I will ask the Clerk to read.

Report read by the Clerk as follows: -

The Standing Orders Committee, having considered the question of framing Standing Orders dealing with instructions to Committees of the Whole, have resolved to recommend to the Senate the following additional Standing Orders, viz. : - " 319A. An instruction can be given to a Com mittee of the Whole on a Bill to amend an existing Act, to consider amendments which are not relevant to the subject-matter of the Bill, but are relevant to the subject-matter of the Act it is proposed to amend, provided that such motion shall be carried by at least fifteen affirmative votes." " 319B. An instruction to a Committee of the Whole requires notice, and can only be moved before going into Committee on any question."
