Senator PLAYFORD (South Australia) . - I move -

That the Senate do now adjourn.

In submitting the motion I may be permitted to say that the very slow progress we have been making of late with the business may necessitate my asking honorable senators, after next week, to meet on the Tuesday. Whether that request be made or not will depend to a considerable extent on the state of the business. If sufficient progress be made I shall not take the step I have indicated, but it mav be necessary to have the extra sitting day if we are to close the session within a reasonable time.

Senator Sir Josiah Symon - Of course the Minister of Defence will give notice of such a motion?

Senator PLAYFORD - Certainly.

Senator MILLEN(New South Wales) {10.30]. - In reference to the intimation given by the Minister of Defence, may I express the hope that in order to expedite public business, the Government will not unnecessarily occupy time bv seeking the recommittal of any of their measures.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
