I was a little unfortunate, Sir, in not catch-your eye earlier. I desired to ask if the Government had not a statement to make, in view of the very big vote against them, as to what they intended to do and whether they were going to take the same course as was taken by a previous Government and we might expect their resignation. The figures were much the same.

We have seen a somewhat extraordinary spectacle when over 60 supporters of the Government have enrolled themselves against the Government proposal. May I ask if the Leader of the House is going to make a statement informing the House as to their intention?

I have no desire to impede that very important Measure. Perhaps I shall be in Order afterwards.

Question put, and agreed to.

The remaining Orders were read, and postponed.

It being after the hour appointed for the Adjournment of the House, Mr. SPEAKER adjourned the House without Question put, pursuant to the Standing Order.
