Senator DAWSON (QUEENSLAND) - I desire to take this opportunity to make a personal explanation. It will be remembered that just before the adjournment a dispute arose between Senator Millen and myself as to authority for pairs. I have since ascertained that Senator Millen has authority from Senator Symon to pair him, and that Senator Playford has given a " dead " pair, which Senator Millen can call for at any time. I have to say that I was entirely under a misapprehension. At the same time, it would be much more satisfactory if authority of this kind were exercised before the bells stopped ringing, so as to avoid misunderstanding.
