Mr. MACKENZIE:

It will depend, of

course, entirely upon the .progress made in the house. Generally speaking, the other place requires an hour's notice after we have finished the active business of this chamber. So that if we finished at three or four o'clock, prorogation would be about five o'clock. But I shall be pleased to let my hon. friend know to-morrow.

May I refer to a question asked by the leader of the opposition this morning when I was engaged on other duties outside the chamber. He asked whether the committee on the orders and rules of the house would be set up again next session. It is the intention to set up that committee as soon as possible after the new session is convened.
