I thought possibly the
committee had almost finished. If I could, I should like to report the bill to-night, although of course there is no intention to rush it. I was going to suggest that as the committee of supply will still have the main estimates of the Department of National Defence to consider, I would think, without making a ruling on it, that almost anything could be discussed on the question of the salary of the Minister of National Defence, if on no other
item. So if the discussion is about through, and if hon. members are willing, I would be very glad if the bill could be reported. However, I see it is five minutes after eleven.
