Mr. Harris:

I know hon. members opposite will not take this in anything more than a helpful sense, but I have a good many requests for special consideration on special days and many hon. members have spoken to me before the hon. member for Kamloops and I feel I will have to carry out these engagements.

Mr. Knowles:

I hope the minister will not take our silence a moment ago as indicating that we necessarily agree to the proposition that the Judges Act might be put through all its stages in one day. We may agree; but let us not take it as being agreed tonight.
