If the minister is preparing a statement why not set out the information in detail? It will be quite easy to do so.

Mr. FORKE:

If we could get an intelligent grasp of how these moneys are being spent we would be satisfied. It would facilitate the business of the committee if we had this information beforehand.

Progress reported.

INTERIM SUPPLY

LIB

William Stevens Fielding (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

Hon. W. S. FIELDING (Minister of Finance) :

Before the adjournment may I call the attention of the House to the fact that we are on the edge of a new fiscal year, and though we have made considerable progress with the Estimates the supplies are not in a condition to warrant us making anything like an extensive appropriation. I am going to ask the House on Monday, if I can obtain unanimous consent, for a special supply bill covering two months of the coming year. I give notice in this informal way in the hope that the House will agree to it without division.

On motion of Mr. Fielding the House adjourned at 10.55 p.m.
