Mr. Harris:

I would hope, Mr. Speaker that before the day is out we could And that we could perhaps wind up some of the business of the house. I would be prepared to postpone consideration of the supplementary estimates if we could find a way of doing that. However, if there is no possibility of doing so we shall take the estimates late tomorrow night. Otherwise they might go over until the following day.

Motion agreed to and the house adjourned at 9.55 p.m.
