BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE

LIB

Louis Stephen St-Laurent (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Mr. St. Laurent:

As announced previously, it is the intention that the Minister of Finance should move tomorrow, at the opening of the sitting at eleven o'clock, that the house go into committee of supply to ask for interim supply. After interim supply is granted, as formerly announced, it will be the disposition of the government to call the order dealing with the budget. But there will be in Votes and Proceedings a notice of motion dealing with the international wheat agreement. If it were the desire of the house to have that matter considered tomorrow, the government would have no objection to moving it then; but the government would not ask to have it considered tomorrow unless it was the desire of the house to do that rather than go on with the debate on the budget.

At ten-thirty the house adjourned, without question put, pursuant to the order of the house passed on March 14, 1949.
