Mr. MARTIN:

I shall be glad to give the information with regard to each item as we come' to it. My hon. friend and I had the same argument last year. I intend to give him the information he wants, but not in the form in which he wants it, because I do not think it is the most practical way of doing it.

Mr. FOURNIER (Hull):

If the Minister of Finance is here, we shall consider the two resolutions standing in his name, the one concerning the Tariff Board Act and the other to authorize the Canadian National Railways to issue securities to meet capital expenditures or capital indebtedness. Then we shall proceed with the following bills: No. 334, to amend the Land Titles Act; No. 340, respecting the supplying of electrical power in the Northwest Territories; No. 341, to amend the Yukon Act; No. 337, to amend the criminal code.

When these have been considered we shall move to go into supply, and call one new department. Then we shall proceed with the estimates of the Department of National Health and Welfare, Trade and Commerce, Reconstruction and Supply; but I cannot say in which order we shall take these different matters.

Mr. KNOWLES:

Does the minister mean merely that he does not know in what order the departments in supply will be taken, but that the other matters will be taken in the order indicated?

Mr. FOURNIER (Hull):

I am not sure whether we can proceed first with the resolutions or the bills. Three bills are in the name of the Minister of Mines and Resources, and one is in the name of the Minister of Justice. I cannot say exactly the order in which they will be taken. However we shall try to take them some time during the day.
