Mr. JOHN BRACKEN (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker, I have a question I had intended asking the Minister of Finance (Mr. Ilsley). However, in the absence of the minister, perhaps the Prime Minister would answer. If the answer is not immediately available, we could have it later.
According to the orders of the day we shall shortly be considering a government bill in respect of war expenditures and demobilization. Before that is proceeded with we should have before us the public accounts for the last fiscal year. I would ask the Minister of Finance to table the public accounts and the auditor general's report for the fiscal year ended March 31 last, at the earliest possible time.
