Mr. Chairman, I appreciate the helpful remarks of the hon. member for Cape Breton South, and I should also like to meet the wish of the hon. member for Nanaimo. In view of the difference of opinion, I think perhaps the only possible course to follow is to make a statement on this resolution, and then look forward with hopefulness to the appointment of the committee about which I have spoken, not the one to which the hon. member for Cape Breton South has referred, to deal with these bills as soon as possible.
Topic: NATIONAL DEFENCE
Subtopic: CONSOLIDATION AND REVISION OF EXISTING
Sub-subtopic: CODE OF SERVICE, DISCIPLINE, ETC.
Mr. Speaker, tomorrow we will take up first the resolution in the name of the Minister of Finance to amend the Transitional Measures Act, 1947. Then we will discuss the motion to set up a committee on old age security, and then the motion to refer the estimates of the Department of External Affairs to the standing committee on external affairs. We also hope to pass motions Nos. 4 and 12 on today's order paper.
