Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) . - I wish to ask the Leader of the Government in the Senate, without notice, whether, in view of the reasons given for the adjournment of the Senate on the 6th November, and considering that the disability then alleged still hangs over the head of the Government, it is their intention to proceed with business in the Senate.


Senator Millen - The presence of Ministers here to-day prepared to go on with the business is the best answer to that question.


Senator McGREGOR - Then I move-

That so much of the Standing Orders be suspended as would prevent him moving that the Senate do now adjourn.


Senator Millen - It is not necessary to suspend the Standing Orders.
