Gordon Minto Churchill (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Churchill:

Yes. Tomorrow, Mr. Speaker, we will continue with the estimates of trade and commerce and those are to be followed immediately, of course, by the estimates of Atomic Energy of Canada Limited and the national research council for which I am responsible to the house. Then, the estimates of mines and technical surveys, fisheries, post office, northern affairs, secretary of state, privy council, national revenue and the C.B.C., legislation, health and welfare and finance.

I might point out, Mr. Speaker, that in the three days which are ahead of us, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, operating on the hours that we have agreed to, there are available almost the equivalent of five days of normal hours. Therefore, although the program may appear to be fairly large, the time available to the house is close to being that of a normal five days.

Gordon Minto Churchill (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Churchill:

Mr. Speaker, it depends on the progress that we make with estimates. What I have announced here will carry over definitely for Thursday and Friday. If by tomorrow night we have made considerable progress and if by Friday we appear to be quite close to the end, then we will be able to determine when the legislation will be fitted in.
