Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice- President of the Executive Council) .- I move -

That during the remainder of the present session, Government business, unless otherwise ordered, take precedence of all other business on the notice-paper except questions and formal motions.

At the approach of the end of the session it has been the practice for the Senate to give precedence to Government business unless otherwise ordered. In view of the fact that yesterday's sitting was terminated before the dinner hour, it is the intention of the Government to set aside an extra night for the consideration of private business. Under the terms of this motion it will be possible to allow to honorable senators for private business any time which may be available. As the following motion providing for Tuesday sittings is sure to be carried, there will be no difficulty in that regard. If there is any other time available before the close of the session, those who have private business to submit will receive every consideration.
