Mr. GEO. TAYLOR.

The sub-committee could be working on the Bill, and, when the measure comes before the Committee of the Whole, the members of the sub-committee by their explanations, will facilitate the discussion. If the minister is satisfied with the names of the committee, I think it would be better in view of the other important and large Bills that we have, and in view of the desire to close on the 19th, to leave it to a committee.

Mr. URIAH WILSON.

I would much prefer that the discussion should take place in the House. I think everybody is anxious to hear the discussion., This is one of the most important Bills of the sesssion, affecting not only ourselves, but it will affect our children and our grandchildren, and deserves the most careful attention this House can give it.

Can the hon. gentleman give us some information of what Bills will be taken up to-morrow? It would help us a great deal to know the exact programme.

William Stevens Fielding (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

Mr. FIELDING.

There are one or two Bills in the name of the Minister of Justice that may be taken up, one of which I think is a Bill to amend the Criminal Code. There is a Bill standing in my own name to amend the Annuities Act, a Bill from the Senate, which we will take up if if time permits. We would like to be free to take up any other Bill on the Order Paper. In the evening it is proposed to move the House into Committee of Supply to enable the Minister of the Interior to deal with his estimates, as he will be obliged to be absent for several days, and it is for the convenience of the Interior business that we will ask the House to go into Supply. No doubt there are some gentlemen who desire to use the first motion for Supply for the purpose of discussing some public questions but I hope they will not do so to-morrow evening, but permit the House to go into committee for the purpose of dealing with the estimates of the Minister of the Interior.
