Rt. Hon. Sir ROBERT BORDEN (Prime Minister):
I should like to say to the
House that on account of the Minister of Finance being very actively engaged in very important matters, apart from the Budget, he will not be able to go on with the Budget resolutions as the first order of business to-day. I spoke to the leader of the Opposition about taking up Order No. 12- which is merely for a reference to a committee-Order No. 25, the second reading of a Bill to amend the Yukon Placer Mining Act, and Order No. 10, concerning a Bill that has been unanimously reported by the Select Standing Committee on Agriculture, I do not think any of these matters are controversial.
