Mr SPEAKER -If the honourable member would only pay attention he would know that no motion to suspend Standing Orders had been moved tonight.

Mr Wentworth - If there has been no suspension of Standing Orders, the resolution of the House about the adjournment prevails and the House stands adjourned or the adjournment debate proceeds.

Mr SPEAKER - Order! Although the resolution of 1st March was that the question that the House do now adjourn be put at 10.15 on Wednesday nights, it is still a matter for the House to decide whether the House will adjourn.

Mr Daly - I ask for leave of the House to move the third reading forthwith.

Mr SPEAKER -Is leave granted?

Opposition members - No.

Mr SPEAKER - Leave is not granted.

Suspension of Standing Orders

Motion (by Mr Daly) put:

That so much of the Standing Orders be suspended as would prevent the remaining stages of the Commonwealth Electoral Bill (No. 2) being passed without delay.
