ADJOURNMENT OF THE DÁIL.

I move the adjournment of the Dáil until to-morrow at 3 o'clock.

I beg to second, and, in doing so, I wish to say that last week I brought forward a motion for the appointment of a small Committee to see if peace could not be made in connection with the Postal strike. I recognise any such motion would be severely defeated now, as the previous one was, if the Government opposed it and the Government Whips were put on. I ask if it would be possible to bring forward such a resolution to-morrow, but I would not bring it forward if the Government expressed any hostility, as it would mean a waste of time. I suggest that now, as there is a general feeling outside the Dáil that peace should be made — and I believe that the people are the masters of the Deputies and the Minister in this Dáil—that such a motion should be received.

I have already received notice of motion from a Deputy for the appointment of such a Committee.

No, from Deputy Cole. That motion of Deputy Cole's will come on.

Can you give the terms of it to the Dáil?

Not at the moment.

When the President disagrees with the Postmaster-General it is time to do something.

The disagreement is only on the surface.

The Government promised a day for a debate on the civil administration.

I promised that for eight or ten days hence.

Motion, "That the Dáil do now adjourn," agreed to.
The Dáil adjourned at 6.30.
