Mr. BENNETT:

No; I should not like the right hon. gentleman to understand that; I did not say it was settled. I said it had been revised.

Mr. BENNETT:

And had been printed, yes.

I hope it will be in the house some day next week. I hope to have a copy in the hands of the right hon. gentleman by next week at any rate. So far as the schedules are concerned, I cannot promise when they will be submitted to the house. They will have to be preceded by a resolution which will be put on the order paper next week.

Mr. P. F. CASGRAIN (Charlevoix-Sague-nay):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to inquire of the Prime Minister (Mr. Bennett) if he is in a position to give the details of the legislation or the bill yet to be brought down which he was not able to give last week. He said he would give this information at a later date.

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister) :

I said I would state whether or not it would be introduced. This depends upon the completion of certain information which I am obtaining; part of this information I have since obtained, part I have not. I hope to be able to make a statement next week.

Mr. WILLIAM DUFF (Antigonish-Guys-borough):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to inquire of the Prime Minister (Mr. Bennett) if any consideration has been given to having the house sit on Wednesday nights. A number of us who come from the far parts of this country do not know what to do after six o'clock on Wednesday. Most of us get into mischief and I think it would be in the interests of the country if the Prime Minister would move a resolution that this house sit on Wednesday evenings.

Mr. DUFF:

I won't go that far at the moment. Wednesday evenings first, one step at a time. As the session has advanced to May 9, I think it would be in the' interests of the country and of hon. members to sit Wednesday nights starting next week.

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister) :

The observations of the hon. gentleman are always listened to with interest. If he finds it difficult to shape his course, I suggest that perhaps his ship be brought up three sheets in the wind.

Mr. BENNETT:

Perhaps if his ship were close hauled a little and the course changed a point or two it might be possible for the hon. member to reach a haven of refuge much more readily than he now seems able to do.

Marketing Act

It seems to me that the time which expires between six o'clock on Wednesday and three o'clock on Thursday should enable the hon. gentleman to add knowledge to his vast store of wisdom and perhaps shape a course which would be of great use to us.

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

One of the difficulties of sitting on Wednesday evening is that we have so much to do, for reasons which need not be mentioned. I have no difficulty in filling in the night in an endeavour to prepare for the day. However, I shall give every consideration to what the hon. gentleman has said. In the meantime, perhaps if he reefs down to the second reefing point and close hauls his ship, he will have no difficulty in getting past Wednesday nights.
