Senator MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to ask the Minister representing the PostmasterGeneral, without notice,: a question, which arises out of his reply to Senator Clemons last week, and which has reference to the resolution of the Senate, that in its opinion tenders should be immediately called for a contract for the conveyance of mails be. tween Australia and Great Britain. I would remind the honorable senator that on that occasion he stated that he would confer with his colleague with a view to impressing upon him the importance and urgency of the matter. I desire to ask if he is prepared to state whether the resolution has been given effect to, and whether it will be possible to lay the terms of the new tenders upon the table of the Senate before the Parliament is prorogued?
