Sir ROBERT BORDEN:

I did not intend to move it at present. I will speak to my right hon. friend about it. It is probable that the Senate will sit to-morrow, and it is very desirable that this House should sit unless there is very great objection. I might point out that we are faced with one or two alternatives. This House will have to prorogue not later than Saturday, May 18th, or else adjourn until about the first of August. I am not saying this with a desire to in the slightest degree restrict discussion. 1 am only stating the fact. If it is desired that further discussion with legard to any matters of public business shall take place, I am perfectly willing that . the House should be adjourned until the 1st of August. All I desire to point out, and I do so with all respect, is, that unless this House can prorogue by the 18th of May 'it will be necessary tor us to come back about the first of August.

Sir ROBERT BORDEN:

It has in this way, that we could make some progress to-morrow, and it might assist in enabling us to prorogue on the date I have mentioned. I desire to say, however, that I do not wish the House to sit to-morrow if there is any grave or serious objection. I thought I would let the motion stand for the present, and we can return to it later. In the meantime I will confer with my right hon. friend about it.

Unionist

Sir SAM HUGHES:

Before the Orders of .the Day are called, and in view of some .remarks made by the hon. member for Maisonneuve (Mr. Lemieux) yesterday about the Prime Minister not going overseas this summer, but that other ministers of the Crown would; and in view of the remarkable statement just made by the Prime Minister that we must either prorogue, or adjourn by a certain date to come back later, is it the intention of the Prime Minister to give to this House and to the country -a statement as to what the ministers are going to do when they go overseas; whether they are going to do any more than they did last year, and whether they are going to get the overseas forces in order? We want to know what is going to be accomplished by this trip to England, and why the members of this House should be called back here on the 1st of August, if matters stand as we understand they do.
