That the Senate do now adjourn.

The Hon. the Speaker [ + ]

It is moved by the Honourable Senator Plett, seconded by the Honourable Senator Martin, that the Senate do now adjourn. Is it your pleasure, honourable senators, to adopt the motion?

All those in favour of the motion will please say “yea.”

Some Hon. Senators: Yea.

The Hon. the Speaker: All those opposed to the motion will please say “nay.”

Some Hon. Senators: Nay.

The Hon. the Speaker: In my opinion the “nays” have it.

The Hon. the Speaker [ + ]

I see two senators rising. Do we have an agreement on a bell?

The Hon. the Speaker [ + ]

The vote will take place at 6:05. Call in the senators.

The Hon. the Speaker [ + ]

Honourable senators, it is after six o’clock and pursuant to rule 3-3(2), I am obliged to leave the chair until eight o’clock, when we will resume, unless it is your wish, honourable senators, to not see the clock.

Is it agreed to not see the clock?

The Hon. the Speaker [ + ]

Honourable senators, leave was not granted. The sitting is, therefore, suspended, and I will leave the chair until eight o’clock.
