BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE

LIB

Louis Stephen St-Laurent (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Mr. St. Laurent moved

the adjournment of the house.

He said: As the first order of business tomorrow it is proposed to move that the house go into committee of supply to ask the house to grant interim supply and also call one item of the regular estimates of the Department of Agriculture and one item of the regular estimates of the Department of External Affairs. It is proposed then to proceed with the second reading of Bill No. 87, an act to amend the Exchequer Court Act, and afterwards with Bill No. 83, respecting a national trademark; then the resolution in the name of the Minister of Fisheries, that it is expedient to present a measure for the purpose of regulating the export and import of fish and fish containers. If there is further time we shall take up the second reading of Bill No. 82, an act to provide for the marketing of agricultural products.

Perhaps I might add that it seems to be the desire of hon. members that on Thursday we resume the debate on the budget resolutions.

Motion agreed to and the house adjourned at 11.05 p.m.
