Senator CLEMONS (Tasmania) (Honorary Minister) . - May I be permitted, though somewhat irregularly, to make an appeal to Senator Rae to withdraw his objection ? If I have not his concurrence in submitting the motion I desire to move, it is now too late for me to give notice of it at this sitting, and the result must be to postpone the matter still further. I desire to inform the honorable senator that, unless I obtain leave to submit the motion now, no other business can be transacted under our' Standing Orders - not even private members' business. I urge the honorable senator, in the circumstances, to withdraw his objection.

Senator Rae - Very well, I withdraw my objection.
