Progressive Conservative

Mr. Green:

Any business on Monday would have to be either item No. 4-the closure order-or possibly item No. 3, with regard to additional judges, though I believe the intention would be to provide for only one additional county court judge for Ontario; or, it may be, a motion to go into supply. If we did that, we would add other departments; probably finish up post office and the Department of Mines and Technical Surveys and take defence production and trade and commerce.

Mr. Chevrier:

Does the leader of the house not know now which of these three or four items he has just mentioned is likely to come up on Monday? After all, if it is a motion to go into supply I take it it is only fair to the opposition to let us know at least on Friday whether such a motion is likely to come up on Monday.

I have outlined to the house what the business will be on Monday, and I do not think I can go any farther.

Mr. Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

May I ask the leader of the house a question? Is he aware of the fact that the government leader in the other place indicated that

it was his thought that some supply bills might go over there from this place tomorrow, and that the other place was being asked to meet tomorrow for that purpose? Has the government any intention of producing a supply bill tomorrow based on such resolutions as have been passed at today's sitting, and, if not, what was Senator Haig talking about in the other place?

Mr. Chevrier:

May I ask another question? In view of the statement the leader of the house has made on more than one occasion that the house would terminate its business today, is he able to indicate now when the end of the session will come?

Mr. Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Would the leader of the house consider the seriousness of the question as to what was meant by the words used by the government leader in the other place? After all, he is a member of the cabinet, as is the hon. gentleman. Will the house leader also say whether it was significant that he used the subjunctive mood when he referred a minute ago to Monday?

Mr. Green:

Mr. Speaker, I shall be very glad to take the hon. member's suggestion into consideration. He will have heard what I said a few moments earlier. I have nothing to add to that statement.
