Mr. Howard:

I think in view of the objection which has been raised we had better do what was done in connection with the estimates of the Department of Justice and have a general discussion. I think we should include Indian affairs in the discussion on the first item.

Mr. Howard:

The minister has outlined the way in which this has been dealt with in the past, and what he has suggested does make for a more orderly approach. However, at this stage of the session there is, I understand, a rush to finish our business, presumably by next week end. This being the case the committee could easily find itself in the position of spending an inordinately long time in discussing citizenship and immigration at the expense of the time which

Supply-Citizenship and Immigration might be available for the consideration of Indian affairs. We might find that everything had to be condensed into the last few minutes of the day. If there could be some guarantee that we would spend an appropriate amount of time on Indian affairs, without extending the hours of sitting as they have been unanimously agreed, I am sure we could look at the minister's suggestion favourably.

Mr. Howard:

Before you leave the chair, Mr. Speaker, could we perhaps get the sense of the house now with respect to the suggestion that we dispense with the debate on the notice of motion in the name of the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration (Mr. Favreau) regarding the Indian claims commission in order that the bill may be introduced?

Mr. Howard:

Mr. Chairman, it has been very interesting to listen to the hon. member for Lotbiniere, who has just taken his seat. It seems to me it is very appropriate that we are discussing today immigration and Indian affairs, because if the Indian people of this nation could have had the sort of immigration policy when Jacques Cartier came here that we have now, the hon. member for Lotbiniere would not be here to complain about this situation and our native Indian people would be a lot better off than they are at the present time.
