Senator PLAYFORD(South Australia-

Minister of Defence) [2.37]. - In the first place, I move -

That the Senate, at its rising, adjourn until to-morrow at 2.30 p.m.

At first I did not propose to ask the Senate to adjourn on the present occasion, but I found that many honorable senators strongly held the opinion that out of respect to the right honorable the Premier of New Zealand, whose untimely death we all mourn, we ought to adopt a course similar to that which was adopted yesterday by the other branch of the Legislature. This is a preliminary motion.
