Mr. Churchill:

We will carry on with northern affairs, followed by the estimates of secretary of state, defence production and legislation.

For Monday and Tuesday we will deal with legislation, chiefly the combines act. I am not in a position to report to the house what other items might come forward. I said that there might be one or two minor items to announce, but unfortunately that information is not available tonight.
