Senator PEARCE (Western AustraliaMinister of Defence) . - In reply to the remarks of Senator Chataway, I may say that I was first approached in this matter by Senator St. Ledger, who told me that he spoke for several honorable senators upon the opposite side of the chamber. Later on I was informed that a number of Ministerial supporters desired to get away this evening - not for the purpose of attending the ball at. Government House, but for another purpose.

Senator Millen - I may say that I think Senator St. Ledger had ample warrant for his statement.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
