Senator DALY(South Australia -

Vice-President of the Executive Council) [3.9]. - I move -

That the Semite at its rising adjourn till Tuesday next at 3 p.m.

I desire to inform the Senate that I have conferred with the Acting Prime Minister (Mr.Fenton)who regrets that the Senate has been inconvenienced, and that the promise I made a day or two ago concerning the date on which the present sittings of the Senate would terminate cannot be fulfilled. The Acting Prime Minister desires me to assure the Senate that the alteration in the arrangement, which it was believed could be carried out, is due to the fact that the Government felt thatsomething should be done immediately to assist the wheatgrowers, and a measure to give them some assistancehas now been introduced in another place. He informs me that another place will meet, on Tuesday, and that he will use his best endeavours to see that the measure reaches this chamber in time for proper consideration to he given to it, and to allow honorable senators to leave for their homes by Wednesday night.

Senator Payne - Is there any other bill to come forward?
