Mr. Speaker, tomorrow by general agreement we will start with the debate on Bill No. C-71, an act respecting the civil service of Canada. I understand that there will only be two or three members speaking on that occasion. This bill will then go to a special committee to be studied there and then come back to the house to be studied in the committee of the whole. If it is agreeable to the house, and that debate is concluded in good time, we will follow it with the motion of the Minister of Finance to set up the special committee to consider that bill. We will then carry on with the estimates of the Department of Labour.
The forecast for next week, subject to change if unexpected circumstances require, is as follows. Monday will be private members' day. Tuesday we would like to consider item No. 2 on today's order paper, second reading of Bill No. C-51, an act to amend the Coastal Fisheries Protection Act, and then take item No. 9 on today's order paper which is my resolution dealing with the Army Benevolent Fund Act. The third item on Tuesday would be item No. 14 on today's order paper which is the motion in the name of the Minister of Agriculture, asking the standing committee on agriculture to inquire into the prices of farm machinery. Then, item No. 4 on Tuesday would be item No. 8 on today's order paper, the resolution in the name of the Minister of Labour dealing with the vocational rehabilitation of disabled persons.
On Wednesday we would commence with Bill No. C-73, to amend the Income Tax Act. Should that be completed, we would then follow with item No. 12 on today's order paper, the resolution in the name of the Minister of Agriculture dealing with agricultural development.
Thursday's business would be a continuation of the items that I have called for Wednesday. If they are finished the remainder of the time on Thursday and on Friday would be devoted to the estimates of the Department of Agriculture.
