Mr. R. L. BORDEN (Halifax).
I understand that it is not convenient for the Minister of Trade and Commerce to be here to-day, and therefore I have arranged not to proceed with the motion respecting the Fast Atlantic Service, of which I gave notice last evening. I might say to my right1 lion, friend the Prime Minister that I would like to proceed either on Saturday or on Wednesday. Believing that this session would have ended before this, I made an engagement for Monday, which will necessitate my absence on Monday and on Tuesday until ten o'clock in the evening ; therefore,
I would be prepared to go on on Wednesday or on Saturday, as may be most convenient.
