Senator PLAYFORD (South Australia) (Minister of Defence) . - I think honorable senators might go a little further than that. They might agree to pass the whole of the clauses of the Bill, and the two first items of the schedule. I do not think there will be any trouble about those items.

Senator Lt Col Gould - There will be a good deal of discussion on the first item.

Senator PLAYFORD - If there is going to be a good deal of discussion, I shall have to ask the Senate to sit on Mondays, and to keep a quorum to enable the Government to do a certain amount of business every night. If we are to go on as we are doing now, we shall be sitting here until Christmas.
