Sir HENRY DRAYTON (Leader of the House):

Mr. Speaker, may I make a suggestion to my hon. friend? I understand some of the bills are contentious and some are not. Would he indicate the bills which are contentious and let the other business of private bills be discharged in the ordinary way? It is within my hon. friend's right, of course, to object to ail of them, but I would suggest that course of action to him.

May I ask the leader of the acting government, Mr. Speaker, if there is any agreement to be arrived at as to what bills are contentious and what are not contentious; he should take into consideration the fact that there are two other groups in the House?
