Senator LYNCH (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - In view of the fact that this chamber has been subjected to the extraordinary, I cannot call it lack of courtesy, but at any rate treatment of having only one Minister present to carry on his shoulders the burden of all the business, I should like to know if the Government will seriously consider the withdrawal of that single Minister so that there will be no Minister in the chamber ?

Senator Sir GEORGE PEARCE - by leave - I should not be acting fairly to the Leader of the Government in the Senate if I did not explain that Senator Daly spoke to me before the meeting of the Senate, and informed me that he could not be present at question time because he would be engaged in an important conference with the Acting Prime Minister.
