Mr. Speaker, we will continue with this tomorrow, but I would point out to hon. members that it would be desirable if we could fairly early in the day make suitable arrangements for the prorogation of parliament by some hour which could at least be a target.
I might also say that there are two bills which would be based on the resolution before the committee, and when they have gone to the other place we might, if it meets the wishes of hon. members, take up the international atomic energy convention, if the house is prepared to discuss it, and also the taxation agreements with the three countries mentioned on the order paper. We might dispose of them, I would hope, in that interval. I say this not to suggest by any means that we should have a target, but merely to point out that some arrangements have to be made as a consequence of our decision to prorogue tomorrow.
