I think we will, if the House consents, proceed with supply, and I 'would ibe glad !ilf lion gentlemen would give their attention to the estimates for *the (current year (which 1 brought down tonight. The notice is short, but some of the departments are in need of money very 'badly and if there is anything which is not (controversial we will endeavour to obtain .the assent of .the committee to these estimates to-morrow. Of course, if they are objected to .they cannot go through.
These estimates are for the .current year. I.f there is anything that is controversial we cannot proceed. Some of the services in connection with the House are out of money and unless we are enabled to secure an early, vote it may be embarrassing to some of our officers.
