Mr. MEIGHEN:

That was not stated. I cannot dispute the hon. member's intention; all I can state is what he said. Hon. members must make their preparations in accordance with the government's statement. It is true that between twelve and one o'clock I was personally notified that the government intended to go into Committee of Supply on other matters, but even that notification to me is not sufficient. I did not get it myself until the time mentioned. But I am only one member; other members guide themselves by the notice of the government leader the night before, and would not be prepared, especially on important matters of Supply, because of the information given by the Minister of Soldiers' Civil Re-establishment. What the minister stated was that a motion would be made to go into Committee of Supply in order to afford the

hon. member (Mr. Baxter) an opportunity of discussing certain matters in connection with the Post Office Department. Then he went
