Tomorrow we shall continue with the estimates of the Department of Citizenship and Immigration. Then we shall take the legislation estimates, public works, trade and commerce, health and welfare and finance.
I ask the minister a question which in effect is supplementary to an exchange we had this morning on the orders of the day when the
Business of the House minister asked me to look at the order paper and see there the other items of legislation that he had not mentioned for today. I wonder whether he would tell me what he has in mind. In view of the progress that the house has made today, there are only four items of legislation left on the order paper. It has been indicated that three of them will not be proceeded with at this session. That leaves only one, namely item No. 7. What is the government's intention with regard to item No. 7?
Might I have the ear of the house leader? The other day the house leader told us he expected that we would complete the business of this session by the end of January. Since we have only 24 hours left, I wonder whether he expects that he will carry out that commitment.
