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

That the Senate, at its rising, adjourn till to-morrow at 1 1 a.m.

I have arranged with the right honorable the Leader of the Opposition (Senator Pearce) for the Senate to meet to-morrow at 11 a.m., instead of at the usual time, so as to avoid a late sitting. We are making fairly satisfactory progress, but I remind honorable senators on both sides that there is still a fairly lengthy legislative programme to be disposed of. Tonight I heard complaints that arrangements were not being made for a discussion on the tariff. It seems to me that there is little possibility of discussing the items before next March, but we may be able to set aside a day or two for general discussion, if we push on with the other legislative measures which the Government desires to pass. These include the Sales Tax Bill, the Income Tax Assessment Bill, the Appropriation Bill, the Workmens Compensation Bill, and last, hut not least, a proposal of interest to Tasmanian senators, the Hops Control Board Bill. I am afraid that, if not this week, at least next week it may be necessary to break away from our usual practice and sit all night.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
