George Alexander Drew (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Drew:

But I would point out that if the government leader in the house is anxious to expedite business he might well reconsider

the advisability of calling this remaining department, because I should think it should be fairly obvious to him that he might delay the consideration of other matters now before the house which perhaps could be dealt with in an orderly procedure tomorrow.

Mr. Fournier (Hull):

My hon. friend knows that I always co-operate. We will call that department because if there is going to be a debate on going into supply I cannot see the usefulness of saying that we will not call it. If I had the assurance of the hon. gentleman that we would go into supply at a certain time during the day and take up transport or national defence I would be ready to forgo that and call this department on Wednesday; but if there is to be a debate one way or the other I am not losing anything.

Mr. Knowles:

In view of the interest of the government and the house in expediting the business of the session would it not be a good idea to let the Judges Act amending bill stay over until the fall session?
