Mr. CHEVRIER:

I was asked the same question last night. I brought it to the attention of the Minister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. Howe), and I think he would like to go on with it as soon as possible. However I think it is the intention to deal with these bills first.

It being five minutes after eleven o'clock, the house adjourned, without question put, pursuant to standing order.

[The following items were passed in committee of supply.]
