I am sorry to have to announce that the Minister for Local Government is ill, and that I have been asked to take charge of this particular business for him. Accordingly, I move:—"That the Local Elections Postponement (Amendment) Bill be received for final consideration."
LOCAL ELECTIONS POSTPONEMENT (AMENDMENT) BILL—REPORT.
In view of the sickness of the Minister, which I regret, I will not take the steps which I proposed to take—I desired to oppose the Bill at every Stage. I hope the Minister will soon be well.
Is there any objection to taking the Fifth Stage of the Bill now?
