Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) - - I suggest to the Government that in view of the way in which these Bills are being dealt with, it would only be fair that they should indicate what business it is proposed to take to-morrow. We are tobe asked to deal with measure after measure, and how can we say that it is desirable to put down a particular Bill for tomorrow when we see that the businesspaper is already crowded? We are now asked to consider forthwith the message of the House of Representatives with reference to the Workmen's Compensation Bill. That may mean turning aside from the consideration of the Constitution Alteration Bills. A call of the Senate has been arranged for to-morrow, and may have to be postponed if the debate on those Bills is not finished by then.
