The PRESIDENT - Under the Standing Orders a ballot can be demanded for the selection of the members of a Select Committee. If a ballot is not demanded, the motion will be dealt with by an ordinary vote of the Senate. I will now put the question.

Senator Millen - Is that, sir, the question for nominating the Committee, or for carrying the original motion?

The PRESIDENT - The original motion has been carried. The question I am about to put is merely to appoint the members of the Committee; and, in accordance with the Standing Orders, Senator de Largie has nominated them. It is the right of any honorable member to demand a ballot if he so chooses.

Senator Millen - All right, sir; that I have no desire to do.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Motion (by Senator de Largie) agreed to-

That the Committee report to the Senate on this day four weeks.
