Before putting the motion I think I Should say that is a very unusual vote. I am informed that in the history of this house a vote on a motion such as this has very rarely been taken. The motion is for the adjournment of the house and if it should carry the house would adjourn until to-morrow at three o'clock. It is unusual for the Chair to make such a statement, but I think under the circumstances I may be forgiven for having done so.
