There is other business that could be taken up. We have concluded this debate earlier than we might have done, and in so doing we have made a concession. We are not asking anything extraordinary in the request that further consideration of this Bill be postponed until Monday. Hon. members would not suffer, and in the meantime some other business might be proceeded with. The various bye-elections take place on Monday and many hon. members will no doubt be absent.
Subtopic: BILL, PROVIDING FOR THE ACQUISITION OF THE SYSTEM BY THE GOVERNMENT.
