Major James William Coldwell

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. COLDWELL:

If the official opposition goes on to-morrow afternoon with the budget debate and the budget debate is adjourned immediately thereafter I agree to the hour

from eight to nine being taken, but the original arrangement for to-morrow was that there would be four speakers in th budget debate, although I think four is far too many. However, I think this charter debate should be completed; that to-morrow the leading speaker for the opposition in the budget debate, the hon. member for Muskoka-Ontario (Mr. Mac-donnell) should go on, if he wishes, and that then the budget debate should be adjourned. On that basis I would agree to the hour from eight to nine being taken, but otherwise I would not be disposed to agree.

Mr. MACKENZIE:

I will give an undertaking that he- is protected next Tuesday from eight to nine o'clock, and with the consent of the house, Mr. Speaker, I now move:

That the order of business between the hours of eight and nine p.m. on Friday, October 19, be suspended and transferred to government business in order to discuss the resolution dealing with the charter of the united nations standing in the name of the Prime Minister.

That is to cover the undertaking which the house has just been generous enough to give regarding private members hour from eight to nine o'clock to-morrow night.
