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

That Standing Order 134 be suspended to enable a motion to be moved at once rescinding an order of the Senate in connexion with the Acts Interpretation Bill.

As honorable senators are aware, it is anticipated that we shall conclude this session's legislative programme to-morrow. Should there be no break in the sitting it will be impossible to get the Acts Interpretation Bill to another place. There are certain urgent matters connected with that legislation which it is desired should be agreed to by both Houses of Parliament before they rise for the recess. The Leader of the Opposition has been consulted in this matter, and I understand that he does not regard the bill as being of a contentious nature.

Senator Sir George Pearce - With the exception of one clause.

Senator DALY - One clause relates to a decision which has not yet been given; but honorable senators will see in the bill a provision that that particular provision shall not come into operation until a proclamation has been issued. I am instructed to give an assurance, on behalf of the Government, that a proclamation will not be issued until the matter has been decided.
