According to the custom the Speaker automatically leaves the Chair on Friday, but as the Estimates of the Agricultural Department have not yet been considered, my hon. friend (Mr. Tol-mie) could not, strictly speaking, proceed to-day. However, we quite understand his good object, and I have no objection to his proceeding on the understanding that at a later stage abundant opportunity shall be afforded for the discussion of these items. Therefore I am very glad to concur so that the Minister of .Agriculture (Mr. Tolmie) may at once have an opportunity of making a statement.
